The San Diego Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) Scientific Working Group (SWG) Program objectives include: identifying promising new areas of HIV research through our strategic planning process; developing research expertise and capacity in these areas; and coordinating education and new collaborations across SD CFAR institutions and with the HIV community.

Planned services of the SWG included the following:

  • Dissemination of working knowledge in the designated field
  • Support of regular scientific symposia with presentations by visiting or local scholars to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations and support research productivity
  • Access to ongoing journal clubs where high-impact research related to these fields will be presented, and
  • Educational opportunities related to grant writing, manuscript writing, presentation training, and other topics
