Implementation Science 1-day Mini-Course
Course participants are also invited to participate in a one-day Implementation Science Mini-Course on Friday, August 3, 2018

Implementation science aims to bridge the “know-do” gap by using rigorous methods to study, test, and evaluate strategies to improve integration of evidence-based practice into public health programs and policy. Participants in the mini-course will be introduced to a range of implementation science methods, ranging from designing quasi-randomized studies to conducting qualitative research.
There is no additional cost to participate in this mini-course. More information about the mini-course can be found on the workshop website.

4th International Workshop on the Microbiome in HIV


Tue - Wed, Oct 16 to Oct 17, 9:00am - 5:50pm


Rockville, Maryland
4th Intl Workshop on the Microbiome in HIVThe understanding of the human microbiome continues to grow rapidly; however information on the role of HIV infection on changes in the microbiome, and the role of the microbiome in HIV transmission, prevention, pathogenesis and treatment is still limited.  While research in this area may be presented at major conferences, there is often limited time for in-depth discussion and debate among cross-disciplinary experts on new data and their implications. The aim of this workshop is to provide increased opportunities for discussion and exchange of knowledge following formal presentation of the latest research.

This 2 day event will have invited lectures by key research leaders from both the broader Microbiome field, as well as HIV/Microbiome investigators, oral abstract presentations and poster presentations.  The conference will be unique in its approach, as it will engage basic scientists and clinicians from the HIV field and leading scientists involved in microbiome researchs.  Registration is free.  There will also be a Young Investigator Scholarship program to support travel, to encourage participation of emerging investigators. 

The program including the speakers can be found at link to the website is below.
