Add to Calendar 2019-05-31 08:15 2019-05-31 16:30 America/Los_Angeles 2019 CFAR Annual Scientific Symposium

The UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research will present the 2019 CFAR Symposium on Friday, May 31, 2019, in the Robertson Auditorium at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Organized jointly by the CFAR’s Administrative and Developmental Cores, the day will be a celebration of CFAR’s legacy in helping to catalyze the stellar HIV research happening here in San Francisco. We will be featuring the work of many former CFAR awardees/mentees who have gone on to be successful independent HIV researchers. Outgoing CFAR Co-Directors, Paul Volberding and Warner Greene, will provide their perspectives on CFAR’s legacy and the current HIV research landscape.
