CIRA-Early Career Scientists Networking Forum (CIRA-ECS)

The CIRA-ECS was launched in fall 2023 as a new collaborative initiative between CIRA and the Yale Global HIV/AIDS Research Network (GARNER), a faculty network hosted by the Yale Institute for Global Health (YIGH). The primary purpose of CIRA-ECS is to create a space for CIRA and GARNER-affiliated early-career researchers and other Yale community members to share works-in-progress, grant ideas, manuscripts, professional development topics, and foster opportunities for networking and collaboration.

As part of this initiative, CIRA organizes 3-4 activities per year, including virtual or hybrid panels and social events, to promote capacity building and facilitate networking. Handouts and resources from past events can be accessed below.
