In addition, while the workshops were originally tailored to mentor the next generation of HIV researchers, career development has become an important new focus as the breadth and depth of the sessions continues to expand. CAHR would like to thank its funding partners, without whom this workshop series would not be possible.

CAHR will be hosting a two-day integrated training workshop focusing on research integrity training for social sciences and humanities. This workshop will be structured around a series of interrelated topics utilizing shorter lightning talks, multimedia presentations, writing sessions, and in-depth expert presentations from a diverse range of leading Canadian social scientists. By aligning integrity throughout all aspects of a researcher's career goals and activities (including into such topics as writing, authorship, peer review, and research dissemination and promotion), this workshop will aim to ensure that research integrity is understood as central to the career success of social science researchers in the realm of HIV, HCV and STBBI.
