...Frances Chiang, a family friend of Dr. Derdeyn's, is graduating from Georgia Tech in May of 2012 and is hoping to work as a research technician at Emory for a year or two, while she prepares to apply to medical school. According to Dr. Derdeyn's letter of recommendation: "...[Frances] has broad laboratory and data analysis skills and has even co-authored a manuscript describing work she did at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. ....

Spotlight! | Social and Behavioral Science Research Network (SBSRN)

The Social and Behavioral Science Research Network (SBSRN) meets annually to foster cross CFAR collaborations between behavioral and social scientists, share strategies on how behavioral and social scientists communicate with basic scientists, provide a forum for the exchange of the most recent information in the behavioral sciences regarding HIV/AIDS, and mentor the next generation of behavioral social scientists.

The 2012 meeting, hosted by the Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill CFARs, will take place this week (March 1-2, 2012) and will focus on the social and structural research approaches to implementing new advances in HIV prevention and treatment. Panels will cover important issues such as moving from efficacy to effectiveness of biomedical advances, implementation science, drug use and sex work, community collaborative research, and the role of incarceration in the HIV epidemic.
