CIRA International Visiting Fellow Program 2024

After a 4-year hiatus due to the pandemic, CIRA is pleased to announce that we will host a new cohort of international visiting fellows in April 2024. The goal of the program is to support CIRA investigators engaged in HIV research in an international setting to bring an established or prospective research partner to CIRA and Yale for a short visit to work on collaborative HIV research endeavors, present on their research plans, and network with CIRA's research community. The program prioritizes visiting fellows from a country in regions with the highest burden of HIV/AIDS.
This year's international visiting fellows and Yale faculty hosts are:

  1. Lucy Chimoyi, PhD (The Aurum Institute, South Africa)
    • Research interests: strengthening integrated TB and HIV services and the use of spatial epidemiology to characterize HIV transmission
    • CIRA/Yale hosts: Sheela Shenoi, MD, MPH and Luke Davis, MD, MAS
  2. Iryna Zaviriukha, MD (European Institute of Public Health Policy, Ukraine)
    • Research interests: older adults with HIV, stigma, factors determining care engagement including mental health, and the HIV and addiction care systems adaptation during humanitarian crises
    • CIRA/Yale host: Julia Rozanova, PhD

Join us on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at 12:00 pm-1:00 pm in a seminar featuring CIRA international visiting fellows to hear about their respective work in South Africa and Ukraine and participate in an interactive discussion and Q&A. For more details and to register: click here.
