2016 Inter-CFAR Collaboration on HIV Research in Women Symposium
December 6 & 7, 2016

Birmingham, AL

Deadline: Sunday, October 2, 2016

We are soliciting abstracts for posters and oral presentations from investigators at CFAR-affiliated institutions in each of the below three areas. We will be giving priority to junior and mid-level investigators from doctoral students through assistant professor titles.  Abstracts must be no more than 350 words in length.  Review criteria include overall impact, contribution to the field of HIV in women, and relevance to one or more of the three session topics. Some travel support (domestic) will be available based on need. There will be no registration fee for this symposium.

The goal of the CFAR Joint Symposium on HIV Research in Women is to identify gaps in knowledge in HIV and women's research and develop strategies that will move the field forward.  In order to accomplish this goal we aim to generate collaborative activity between CFARs and other research networks, highlighting cutting edge science and promoting opportunities for young investigators. The meeting will consist of three sessions:

  • Vulnerable Populations
  • Microbiome in HIV-Infected Women and its Impact on Health Outcomes
  • The HIV Continuum of Care Across the Lifespan of Women

Abstract deadline: Sunday, October 2, 2016
