NeuroHIV Emerging Issues and Substance Abuse Joint Colloquium | October 23 - 24, 2018

The Chronic HIV and Aging in NeuroAIDS (CHAIN- NIH P30MH062261) Center and the Nebraska Center for Substance Abuse Research (NCSAR) announces a two-day joint colloquium at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, Nebr., and offered as a free webinar.

The goal of this event is to bring together leaders in the fields to discuss emerging topics, foster new ideas and collaborations, and educate new and established investigators.

The CHAIN Center, an NIMH Centers Program for Research on HIV/AIDS and Mental Health, will host the first day, October 23, 2018. This colloquium, the sixth in the series, will focus on “NeuroHIV – from bed to bench side.” No, that isn’t a typo. Research from the labs has progressed to the clinic; our next question is ‘what is now needed from the lab to continue this progress?’ This day will cover clinical manifestations of HIV infection in the CNS followed by an interactive panel discussion with the speakers, all leaders in the field. The session will be relevant to NeuroHIV researchers and clinicians.

NCSAR will host day 2 October 24, 2018. The NCSAR, established in 2016, recognizes the serious public health problem caused by abused substances and recognizes drugs of abuse as one co-morbidity in individuals with HIV. The focus on day 2 is “Substance Abuse – Lessons learned and where are we going?” Leaders in the field will address the topics of substance abuse and the underlying mechanisms. The day will also end with an interactive panel discussion with the speakers. The session will be relevant to both basic and clinical researches in the field of drug addiction and its neurological consequences.
