The DC CFAR is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the National CFAR Scientific Symposium to be held on Thursday, November 2, 2017 from 8:00am - 4:30pm at the National Academy of Sciences. The theme for this year's meeting is "Conducting HIV Research in Partnership with Government and Community," with a focus on the research response to the domestic HIV epidemic.  We are proud to have been selected to host this important national meeting.

The CFAR Scientific Symposium is a full day event that convenes HIV researchers from the 19 CFARs across the U.S. to discuss the latest developments in HIV research with fellow scientists - in government and academia - and members of the community. The program will feature plenary talks by Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director of NIAID, NIH) and Dr. Eugene McCray (Director of DHAP, CDC) and four themed sessions: HIV Cure Research, The Urban Epidemic, Health Inequities and Aging and Co-Morbidities. Each moderated session will include three oral presentations followed by responses from a government scientist and a community member and Q&A from the audience. Click here to view the full agenda.

This event is free of charge and all DC CFAR members, our numerous community and government partners, and HIV organizations in the DC area, are invited to participate.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  We are anticipating that there will be several hundred registrants, so please click on the link below to register and reserve your space at this very special event. 

In the months ahead, the Weekly Update will feature profiles of the various sessions and speakers in the Symposium.  The DC CFAR Executive Committee has worked hard to put together a dynamic and informative agenda, and we look forward to hosting you in November!
