HIV Grand Rounds

UCLA HIV Grand Rounds

The HIV Grand Rounds lecture series will resume in the Spring of 2022. We will share more information about future lectures. Please look out for email correspondence. Thank you.

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.
