CFAR Mentoring Program Research Symposium
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
The Andy I. Choi Mentoring Program of the UCSF-GIVI Center for AIDS Research will offer Bay Area investigators a glimpse into the future of HIV research with a half-day symposium by CFAR Mentees on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at the J. David Gladstone Institutes' Mahley Auditorium. CFAR Co-Directors Drs. Volberding and Warner C. Greene, will provide a venue for promoting the work of the future leaders in HIV research. The speaker lineup features a group of highly respected HIV/AIDS investigators from our Mentoring Program. Research presentations will span basic, clinical, epidemiologic, preventive and translational aspects of HIV biology.
A highlight of the symposium will be the presentation of the CFAR Early-Career Investigator Awards to recognize and honor the two most outstanding investigators of 2012. We hope to see you there!
