HIV Grand Rounds

UCLA HIV Grand Rounds

The UCLA HIV Grand Rounds series, offered by UCLA CHIPTS and the UCLA AIDS Institute, consists of hour-long lunchtime lectures that are delivered by invited guests or distinguished members of the Institute faculty on a broad range of HIV-related topics.

The aims of the Grand Rounds series are to:

  • Share the latest research findings on HIV prevention, care, and treatment, and highlight important developments in HIV-related research.
  • Encourage scientific collaborations and networking between UCLA investigators and invited speakers.
  • Excite an interest in HIV/AIDS research for early career investigators, and provide resources about new research findings, funding, and career opportunities.
