2021-2022 CFAR Mentoring Program
Online Location

Logistics information and availability of remote participation to be announced closer to event.

The CFAR Mentoring Program is designed to help develop the scientific career goals of early stage HIV investigators and postdoctoral scholars. To that end, on Friday, June 17, 2022 we will sponsor our 7th Annual Early-Stage Investigator (ESI) Leadership Retreat. Drs. Jonathan Fuchs and Monica Gandhi have developed a fully packed ¾ day event that responds to high priority professional development needs shared by UCSF ESIs. 

Erica Peng, an executive coach and professor at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business will offer the leadership training. She helps leaders and social entrepreneurs create resilient relationships, teams, and company culture that can move through and recover from inevitable misunderstanding and conflict. So they can get on with what is most important: accomplishing shared goals and creating possibility together... amidst the most pressing conditions of our time. 

Peer-Reviewed Lightning Rounds

Drs. Fuchs and Gandhi will co-facilitate the popular specific aims peer review lightning rounds, allowing ESIs to get critical peer review and senior investigator input for grant proposals under development. Investigators wishing to present at the lightning rounds should contact Drs. Fuchs or Gandhi or Brenda ASAP.
