IHV Receives $5.5 Million Grant to Foster the Next Generation of Global Health Scientists

The UM School of Medicine's Institute of Human Virology received a $5.5 million award from the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) Fogarty International Center to help foster the next generation of global health scientists.

The award entitled, “Integrated Network of Scholars in Global Health Research Training (INSIGHT)” will expand global health research across sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean by providing one-year mentored research training to U.S. and lower-middle income country scholars.

The five-year grant will train 105 scholars as predoctoral or postdoctoral fellows. The trainees will spend most of the year at a location in a lower-middle income country and each trainee will have an onsite mentor, as well as one based in a U.S. partner institution.
