scientists, who work in many different departments, to apply their expertise to the world of HIV research. While some groundwork has been done, there are lots of opportunities to delve deeper into this important area."

To continually fuel both working groups with new ideas and partnerships, Dewhurst's team will use a scientific "speed dating" approach. Much like speed-dating events where singles try to meet others with similar interests, scientists from different departments will pair up for a few minutes to talk about their research, then move on to talk with the next scientist in the group, identifying complementary areas of interest. Dewhurst believes the approach, first used at UR by the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Optics, is a great way to get a lot of creative people together and to spur new thinking.

"People want to do the same thing they've always done because it is easy, while doing something new is really hard," said Gelbard. "Our CFAR won't involve doing the same old same old when it comes to AIDS research."

Other major players in the UR CFAR include Amneris E. Luque, M.D., head of the AIDS Center, and James McMahon, Ph.D., associate professor in the School of Nursing, who will jointly direct the CFAR's clinical and translational research activities. In addition, Sanjay B. Maggirwar, Ph.D., associate professor of Microbiology and Immunology, will lead the CFAR's basic research activities, and Hulin Wu, Ph.D., director of the Center for Integrative Bioinformatics and Experimental Mathematics (CIBEM), will oversee the CFAR's biostatistics, bioinformatics and biomathematical modeling research activities and support services. Finally, Jennifer Lynch, Senior Associate, will serve as the CFAR's main administrator and the glue that holds the program together, says Dewhurst.

Collectively, the team will ensure that the CFAR supports the entire spectrum of HIV/AIDS research at UR, while also nurturing the car
