As a key tenet of CAHR’s mission is to promote education and the development of new researchers, CAHR has expanded its series of workshops. These training sessions are now held in both official languages across Canada throughout the calendar year, covering approaches ranging from biomedical to community-based research.
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. Funders for the entire 2016 Workshop Series include: the Public Health Agency of Canada; the Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative Alliance Coordinating Office, the CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative, and CANFAR.
