District of Columbia Developmental Center for AIDS Research

The District of Columbia Developmental Center for AIDS Research (DC D-CFAR) aims to lead and support the scale-up of HIV/AIDS research activities in Washington DC; assist with the development, recruitment and retention of HIV/AIDS investigators in DC; and contribute to the prevention and treatment response to the epidemic. Washington DC has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the United States, with HIV seroprevalence rates surpassing those in some sub-Saharan African countries. DC D-CFAR investigators work toward making a difference in the lives of persons infected with and at risk for HIV/AIDS in Washington DC.
