The Center for Interdisciplinary Research to Reduce Antimicrobial Resistance (CIRAR) has served as a hub for interdisciplinary collaboration on antimicrobial resistance research and a home to over fifteen externally funded projects addressing this topic since 2004.  In the spring of 2012, CIRAR was transformed into CIRI: The Center for Interdisciplinary Research to Prevent Infections.  CIRI embraces a broader mission to further research on preventing all types of infections in a variety of community and clinical settings, although many CIRI researchers and fellows will continue to focus on antimicrobial resistance.  A new NIH-funded training program, Training in Interdisciplinary Research to Prevent Infections (TIRI), began supporting pre- and post-doctoral fellows in July 2012. 

TIRI is now accepting pre- and post-doctoral applications for the 2013-2014 academic year. Click here for information and applications. Click here to download the flier.
