*****ABSTRACTS DUE JUNE 15th, 2012*****
The goal of the CFAR Joint Symposium on HIV Research in Women is to identify gaps in knowledge in HIV and women’s research and develop strategies that will move the field forward. In order to accomplish this goal we aim to generate collaborative activity between CFARs and other research networks, highlighting cutting edge science and promoting opportunities for young investigators. The meeting will consist of three sessions:
Each session will integrate areas of basic, clinical and social behavioral sciences.
A mentoring day will be held September 18th. Junior attendees receiving travel support will be required to attend the mentoring session. Other junior investigators are welcome and strongly encouraged to attend.
We are soliciting abstracts for posters and oral presentations from junior and mid-level investigators at CFAR-affiliated institutions in each of the above three areas. Eligible applicants include doctoral students through assistant professor titles. Abstracts must be no more than 350 words in length. Review criteria include overall impact, contribution to the field of HIV in women, and relevance to one or more of the three session topics.
Some travel support (domestic and international) will be available based on need.
