Overview / News
CFAR (Center For AIDS Research) is a nation-wide collaborative currently comprised of seventeen registered sites and two additional sites in the developmental stage. Each location is within a university/hospital whose research community has expanded to include focus on HIV/AIDS. In addition to research to better understand and eventually cure AIDS, each CFAR holds educational meetings to provide an opportunity to share cutting-edge information/project outcomes with others in the field of HIV/AIDS.
Each year one of the CFAR locations hosts the national meeting, where representatives from each site come together to share/educate activities of the past year and plan for the next.
The 18th Annual National CFAR meeting was hosted by the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown CFAR in Providence, Rhode Island, this year. Ibolya Andras, MD (BioChemistry and Molecular Biology) and Emmanuel Thomas, MD (Cell Biology and Anatomy), both Miami CFAR Developmental Pilot grant awardees, were among the Young Investigators’ from each of the CFARs nationwide to present on their work.
The 2015 CFAR meeting will be hosted by the University of Washington / Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center CFAR (Center for AIDS Research), Seattle Washington.
