Dear CFARians,
Last month's CFAR Network Science Seminar, hosted by the CFAR Community Liaison Council, was a rousing success and the 2018-2019 season is off to a fabulous start.

This month's meeting, hosted by the CFAR HIV Malignancies Interdisciplinary Research Group, is going to be equally boffo, in an entirely different way.

Plus, there will be posters! And pizza!

NOTE: This month's meeting will be held at the Rollins School of Public Health (Claudia Nance Rollins Building) Plaza and Auditorium, on the ground floor. I.e. one floor down from where you are used to finding us.
