Dr. Carswell Receives Award

FRI is pleased to announce that Steven Carswell, Ph.D., a Research Scientist at the SRC, recently received a Pathway to Independence (PI) Award (K99/R00) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is the first award of this kind for FRI. He will be studying risk factors for HIV among urban African American youth. This is one of the most prestigious awards that a young investigator can obtain at this stage in the research career. The primary, long-term, goal of the PI program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented NIH-supported independent investigators.
