TC-CFAR Symposium: “Bridging the Disciplines to Understand HIV Transmission”

Symposium Overview

Join us for the Annual Third Coast CFAR Symposium: Bridging the Disciplines to Understand HIV Transmission. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, the goal of the Third Coast CFAR Symposium is to integrate cellular, molecular, clinical, and behavioral perspectives into three sessions that examine HIV transmission in the context of the host, the virus, and intervention.

These sessions will include invited experts from outside Chicago as well as short talks from Third Coast CFAR investigators. Two poster sessions will showcase the breadth of HIV/AIDS research being conducted across Chicago as well as highlighting services provided by the Third Coast CFAR.
