On March 16-18, 2014, HIV/HCV co-infection researchers attended the CAHR Mid-Career Level HIV Researcher Workshop, held in Banff, Alberta. This workshop, which was open to HIV/HCV co-infection researchers with 3 to 12 years of experience, was co-chaired by CAHR Council members Drs. Curtis Cooper (Ottawa Hospital), Mathias Götte (McGill) and Carol Strike (University of Toronto).
Thanks to the generous support of the Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative Research and Development Alliance Coordinating Office, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) and the Public Health Agency of Canada, the meeting included such sessions as: how to be a good mentor; tips for being a journal editor; leadership; practical application of statistical analysis; applying for and managing research centres; how to succeed in the new CIHR funding structure; ; and preparing for tenure and promotion. Additionally those in attendance were afforded the opportunity to network and interact with mentors from the HIV community and other research backgrounds.
