Meets bi-monthly on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 9:30-11:00am, rotating with the UCHCC Cohort meeting

The UNC CFAR Biostatistics Core hosts meetings among quantitative researchers interested in HIV research throughout the research triangle area, including CFAR members and quantitative researchers from UNC, FHI 360, and RTI. The BCRG, formed in spring 2013, provides opportunities for research synergy and networking, through cross-discipline discussion of quantitative methods in HIV/AIDS research. Meetings have been regularly attended by researchers from a range of quantitative fields, including biostatistics, epidemiology and pharmacokinetic modeling. Past presentation topics have included pharmacokinetic modeling, meta-analysis, measurement of viral load outcomes, and statistical methods for serial limiting dilution assays.
