CFAR - Philadelphia Department of Health Collaborative

Data Science and Research Opportunities with the Penn CFAR/PDPH Collaborative

Friday, September 6th, 2019
8:00 am - 12:30 pm
251 BRB II/III

421 Curie Boulevard
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA 19104

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) is now a formal partner in the Penn Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), with the goal of catalyzing research collaborations. The PDPH has a wealth of surveillance and programmatic data that supports research on HIV, HCV and the opioid epidemic. This includes interesting epidemiological and methodological research, and important questions that can inform policy. There are opportunities for both faculty and students to analyze data, be involved in research on HIV-related topics at the PDPH, or initiate collaborations on questions of mutual interest.  To facilitate this, we have a shared biostatistician positioned part-time within PDPH to help with this research.
 
The Penn CFAR will be holding a workshop to highlight past collaborations between the CFAR and PDPH, share information about resources and key questions, and to provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss opportunities for new collaborations.

Remote access will be available via BlueJeans; click here for the event link and detailed instructions.
