South American Conference presentation

PhD student Nicole Iturrieta Guaita presented at the 2017 STI & HIV World Congress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

At the recent 2017 STI & HIV World Congress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, PhD student Nicole Iturrieta Guaita presented three e-posters. The Congress represents the biennial joint meeting of the International Society for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Research (ISSTDR) and the International Union Against Sexually Transmitted Infections (IUSTI), in partnership with the Brazilian Society of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (BSSTD-Rio de Janeiro).

The most prominent researchers in the field of sexually transmitted infections (STI), including HIV, presented new research, the latest interpretations of new data, and discussed the implications of these findings for health policy and delivery of patient care.

And for Nicole and her PhD study, it was a great opportunity to meet researchers from Latin America and gain a better understanding of their work in STI research.

Congratulations on presenting three e-posters related to her PhD candidature:
