Workshop 2010 ( Program )
Clinical Research Training Course in Rwanda for AIDS Researchers, January 2 to 29, 2010 This month-long intensive research methods training program coupled with a mentored experience in data analysis and manuscript preparation was for 12 Scholars from AITRP countries. The course was designed to take place in Rwanda from January 4-29, 2010 and taught by Einstein faculty that have worked together as part of our Master’s degree-granting Clinical Research Training Program and in a similar month-long AITRP-sponsored program that was held in Mumbai in January 2008. The program was designed to have the Scholars in the program develop research papers using HIV data from their countries. Rwandan Scholars, for example, may have access to data from Dr. Kathy Anastos’ WE-ACTx Rwandan cohort. Scholars worked in small groups, concentrating on their group’s dataset throughout the month. Homework was designed to evolve a univariate analysis for a paper. Faculty worked with their group to complete the paper with the goal of publication, after the training is completed. Scholars continue to meet monthly to discuss their papers with their group leaders and with the in-country coordinator, Dr. Eugene Mutimura as well as via email with the US faculty.

Workshop 2008 ( Program )
Clinical Research Training for AIDS Researchers – Mumbai - January 2008 This 4-week, multi-component course taught clinical research methodology, integrating the foundations of epidemiology and biostatistics, including a data analysis, focused on the use of Stata biostatistical software. The course was conducted as a seminar and afternoons were dedicated to doing homework, with course directors and course leaders available for assistance. Select afternoons also included special lectures on key topics such as: bioethics, grant and scientific writing, invited presentations by Indian HIV researchers, and sessions on critical review of the HIV literature. In addition, students were assigned to a course director or course leader who assisted with developing an independent research project, with a clear plan for continued mentoring after course completion. In summary, the course was a unique, in-country training opportunity to build clinical research capacity among junior faculty from AITRP sites.
Cosponsored by Einstein-MMC Center for AIDS Research and the Topiwala Medical College, Mumbai. The course was conducted by the Einstein Master’s in CRTP faculty.
