UCL – Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) Symposium Towards HIV and TB elimination in South Africa

You are warmly invited to the first UCL – Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) Symposium on Monday 12 February 2018 at UCL Roberts Building, Malet Place, London WC1E 7JE.

The one-day event entitled, “Towards HIV and TB elimination in South Africa”, will bring together researchers from UCL and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) with those from the African Health Research Institute (AHRI) in South Africa. It will provide a great opportunity to find out more about the research undertaken at AHRI, and to explore the collaborative potential between these organisations.

 The event aims to bridge cross-disciplinary boundaries and promote interaction between researchers while fostering greater collaboration between UCL, AHRI, LSHTM, and beyond. The symposium will focus on three primary fields of research relevant to AHRI’s activities: HIV, TB, and the methodology of cross-disciplinary team-based research. The event will cover a range of disciplines including population-based methodologies, laboratory science, epidemiology, the social sciences, and research ethics.

Speakers from all three institutions will present their innovative research and answer your questions. Attendees will also enjoy welcome speeches from Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President and Provost, Professor David Lomas, UCL Vice-Provost (Health) and Dr Jim Smith, Director of Science at Wellcome.
