What is it about?

The annual SHINE Clinical Research Training Programme provides the opportunity for clinicians and basic researchers to advance their knowledge and skills required for conducting impactful, collaborative HIV research. This year, the programme will focus on exploring the best practices supporting each of the key elements of a successful HIV clinical research study: from study design, through to implementation, management, and dissemination of study results.

The meeting will be co-chaired by Dr Marta Boffito and Professor Alan Winston accompanied by a panel of international HIV experts who will lead the audience through a 1.5-day journey of highly interactive small-group workshops, panel discussions and plenary sessions.

Topics to be covered include

  • What makes research impactful
  • Translating HIV research into clinical practice and beyond
  • The patient’s perspective in HIV research
  • Hot topics in the field of HIV research
  • Interactive workshops covering:
    1. Clinical Study Design
    2. HIV Cohort Studies
    3. Study Coordination and Implementation
    4. Scientific Communication

Who is eligible to attend?
