STAHR Mentoring Network

​STAHR scholars will have access to a multidisciplinary and diverse network of senior and junior investigators in HIV and aging mental health research, which will be comprised primarily by UCSD mentors and also include investigators from other institutions. This mentoring network will include scientists currently conducting research at the intersection of HIV/Aging, as well as scientists with expertise in either HIV or aging research and with a strong interest in developing research programs at the intersection of these two factors. They will span various areas of expertise, including psychiatry, neuropsychology, neurology, neuroscience and neuroimaging, and have a clinical and translational background. Scholars will have two Core mentors: a primary mentor at their home institution and a Core UCSD mentor. Other mentors may serve a secondary role and can be added to the mentoring team as needed drawing from the STAHR mentoring network. This network will serve as a standing resource for scholars (who could join the mentoring network once they transition to research independence).
