CFAR - Philadelphia Department of Health Collaborative
Data Science and Research Opportunities with the Penn CFAR/PDPH Collaborative
The Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) is 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.
