Alex Liu, an undergraduate at San Diego State University who is completing an internship at the HNRP under the SDSU Career Opportunities in Research (COR) program, received the Dean's Award from the SDSU College of Sciences at SDSU's 4th Annual Student Research Symposium. The award is given to the top two oral presentations in each College, regardless of undergraduate or graduate status.  Alex's presentation was "Neuropsychological Functioning Predicts Occupational Attainment in an Indian Cohort," with data provided from the NeuroAIDS in India (T. Marcotte, PI) project.  Alex has been invited to compete in the California State University-Wide Student Research Competition, to take place in Fresno in May.

HNRP Investigators were invited to a neurocognitive assessments focus group as part of an expert panel on how neurocognitive assessments are performed, analyzed and how neurocognitive research is conducted within the NIAID HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks, and other networks such as the Adolescent Trials Network.  These types of working groups develop specific recommendations for community involvement in Division of AIDS-funded HIV Clinical Research Trials, based upon Best Practices document and community consultations. Drs. Ronald Ellis and Robert Heaton will participate in drafting a consensus statement for publication to guide research in this area at the focus group convening in Seattle, Washington in April 2011.
