New York State International Training & Research Program

Introduction to NYS-ITRP

The New York State International Training Program is a multi-institutional, multi-national collaborative effort sponsored by the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH Grant D43TW000233). The program is cooperatively administered by the State University of New York at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn (SUNY DMC), and the State University of New York at Albany School of Public Health (SPH).

  • University at Albany School of Public Health
  • State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center
  • Center for Drug Use and HIV Research (CDUHR), New York University College of Nursing
  • New York State Department of Health, Wadsworth Center and Division of Epidemiology
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Training areas include:

  • Behavioral Interventions
  • Implementation Science
  • Viral Hepatitis
  • HIV related co-morbidities
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases
  • Tuberculosis

The training for each of the applicants will be tailored according to his/her interests within the parameters of the program. It is our aim that each applicant, upon returning to his/her home institution, will create his/her own research program, develop and implement epidemiologic/laboratory studies, spearhead improvements in diagnostics, and/or enhance existing and implement new public health programs focused on HIV prevention and management. Once a fellow returns to his/her home country, he/she is also eligible for advanced research support from the Fogarty International Center and will continue to be supported by the NYS-ITRP program.
