On April 27 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern time, the NIDA HIV Research Program will hold a virtual symposium honoring six recipients of the Avant-Garde Award Program for HIV/AIDS and Substance Use Disorder Research. The NIDA Avant-Garde Award Program for HIV/AIDS and Substance Use Disorder Research supports individual scientists of exceptional creativity at all career levels who propose high-impact research that will open new areas of HIV research and/or lead to new avenues for prevention and treatment of HIV among people who use drugs.

The HIV Research Program has also posted a video of the recent symposium discussion with some of NIDA’s remarkable Avenir Award recipients. NIDA’s Avenir Awards are designed to stimulate innovation and potentially transformative research from early-stage investigators.
