The CFAR Implementation Science Scholar Award is a grant targeted toward mentoring and training junior investigators at a senior stage of clinical or postdoctoral training or recently independent at UCSF or affiliated partner institutes to conduct independent implementation science research, allowing them to acquire preliminary data and findings leading toward a future grant effort. These awards should use perspectives and methods from implementation science to address a gap in HIV prevention or treatment. For the purposes of this mechanism, we used the NIH definition of dissemination and implementation research (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-13-055.html). Broadly speaking, this includes research to quantify, understand and close the gap between evidence and practice. Use of implementation science frameworks was encouraged. A research team or proposal that contained evidence of different disciplinary perspectives or mixed methods was encouraged.
