inter-CFAR Sub-Saharan Africa Working Group

The CFAR Sub-Saharan Africa Working Group (CFAR-SSA) was formed in 2011 under the leadership of the UCSF-Gladstone CFAR. In November 2012 the leadership was transferred to the Johns Hopkins CFAR to build upon initial accomplishments and enthusiasm.

The goals of the CFAR-SSA working group include

  • Promote new collaborative research opportunities: The CFAR-SSA will develop, improve, and promote multidisciplinary and inter-CFAR research conducted by its members directed at high-priority scientific and public health challenges.
  • Mentor young SSA investigators: The CFAR-SSA will provide a unique, collaborative, and cross-institutional capacity building setting for young investigators working in SSA.
