EuroCoord in association with NA-ACCORD and IeDEA will host a joint symposium entitled Global cohort collaborations and the role of extremely large datasets in HIV/AIDS and other diseases on Monday 23 July from 18.30-20.30 during the XIX International AIDS Conference in Washington DC.
The symposium aims to highlight and discuss the role of cohort collaborations in HIV research. More specifically, areas of discussion will explore: opportunities offered by these collaborations for public health policy makers, steps taken to ensure that datasets provide the highest quality data and the value of these collaborations for modelling the spread and potential impact of the HIV epidemic. The invited speakers are: Veronica Miller, Tim Hallet, Patrick Sullivan, Maya Petersen, Jesper Kjaer, Annette Sohn, Julia Del Amo and Charles Holmes.
For further information please see the symposium flyer (pdf, 10mb) describing the session.
