  • CFAR Symposium

    Our annual CFAR Symposium will be held in August. This year the event will provide opportunities for discussions on hot topics related to HIV biology and immunology, the Cure agenda, and non-AIDS complications, and possible future collaborations among researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and the CWRU/UH CFAR. This two-day event, on August 6-7, 2018 at the Dively Building, will feature speakers from both organizations. Please mark your calendars and be on the lookout for more details and registration information in the coming weeks.
