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.
2021 New Investigator Workshop
To be held in conjunction with the 2021 CAHR Conference, the 13th annual CAHR New Investigator Workshop will bring together aspiring HIV researchers – ranging from Master’s students to New Faculty — from all research disciplines. Co-chairs Dr. Curtis Cooper (Ottawa Hospital) and Dr. Keith Fowke (University of Manitoba) will lead mentorship sessions and presentations from leading Canadian HIV researchers on topics such as getting your grant-funded, writing, publishing and working with the community will be part of the one-day event. Registration is free for all CAHR 2021 Conference goers. CAHR thanks its co-sponsor for this event: The Canadian Foundation for Infectious Diseases.
Research Integrity Workshop - TBD
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 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. This meeting was originally scheduled for Spring 2020 and will be rescheduled later in 2021.
