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 Friday, April 18, 2014 at the J. David Gladstone Institutes' Mahley Auditorium. Dr. Jonathan Fuchs, Dr. Monica Gandhi and CFAR Co-Directors Drs. Paul Volberding and Warner 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.
