About PSMG:

Ce-PIM‘s Prevention Science and Methodology Group (PSMG) is a virtual network of more than 480 empirical researchers and methodologists aimed to advance the field of prevention science and support the implementation of evidence-based prevention programs. The PSMG grand rounds are now conducted virtually over the internet, allowing the members to view, question, and comment live from their own computer with leading scientists and methodologists at no cost. Access to live presentations is restricted to PSMG members. However, PSMG presentations are recorded and will be publicly accessible on our website two weeks after the presentation date on the archive page.

The PSMG will host sessions devoted specifically to HIV Prevention (chaired by Nanette Benbow and Gregory Phillips) as well as Implementation Science (chaired by J D Smith), Agent-Based Modeling (chaired by Wouter Vermeer), and Innovations in Research Designs (chaired by Booil Jo).
