Join the directors of ISC3I and the five IS Hubs in a discussion about supporting high-quality Implementation Science (IS) in HIV research and coordinating efforts for generalizable knowledge across the EHE supplements.
Do you have ongoing work related to implementation science that you would be interested in getting feedback on? Have you learned about a new implementation science method and want to share it with others?
We are scheduling presentations for the Implementation Science Interest Group (ISIG meetings). These meetings will be held from 10:00 – 11:00 AM PT on the third Wednesdays of each month.
To sign up for any free spot for the WIP or journal club session, please complete this form.
- To provide the presenter with valuable feedback from researchers with implementation science experience on IS research design and analytic approaches for any current or planned research. (For example, previous presenters have shared research grant drafts, early study findings, etc)
- To provide attendees with an opportunity to learn from and engage with others who are conducting implementation science research in HIV (For example, previous attendees have been inspired to incorporate specific IS frameworks or methods in their own research work after hearing presentations by others).
- Lastly, by specifically inviting a group of researchers already focused on the same research area, we hope to foster UCSF research collaboration and support grant writing and submissions in the area of implementation science and HIV.
Presentations can vary in structure. See the archive for previous topics.
An example of a 90-minute structure with a single topic is below:
- 15 minutes (focused on a methods topic pertaining to your research (optional/we can help you with content for this depending on the topic))
- 30 minutes (informal presentation of research project or work in progress)
- 45 minutes open discussion and feedback
- We can also split the meeting into two blocks: with a didactic topic and a related work in progress, or two shorter works in progress (10-15 minutes presentation and 30 minutes of discussion each).
Work in progress and journal club speakers will be announced here. Meetings are subject to change. Please check back regularly for updates.
For any further questions or communications regarding the CFAR ISWG, please reach out to Joseph Watabe.

Presenters will provide an overview of appropriate study designs for COVID intervention evaluations as well as how/whether to adapt these designs (both with respect to data collection and analysis) that were conceived for non-COVID research in response to the COVID-19 pandemic or other disruptions. Designs that will be discussed include: pre/post and interrupted time series, stepped wedge, SMART designs, preference designs, and others that focus on implementation.
Speakers: Margaret Handley, Starley Shade, Jean Digitale, and Kristefer Stojanovski
This panel will focus on research methods for moving platforms, and mid-study moves to digital implementation. Topics discussed will include: dealing with interruptions in behavioral trials with longitudinal collection of quantitative data, including biomarkers; changes in data collection / analytic techniques; analytic issues associated with technology; consideration of alternative research questions and corresponding modeling approaches; addressing analytical issues about study completion and exposure.
