Lay Summaries of research
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) -and other grant distributing agencies- fund research involving human participants. In their guidelines, they incorporate directives to distribute research results so that benefits of knowledge creation spread across all interested parties. Reaching out to the public and communities affected by HIV is one of the most critical dissemination efforts.
Within CanCURE, we hope the posting of clear summaries of results from the team’s studies will increase trust in the research enterprise, promote collaboration and advocacy and encourage healthy discussion of issues to advance HIV Cure research. We will use this space on our website to post summaries when research involving human participants who volunteered either by providing biological samples and/or testing an intervention in a clinical trial led to a publication of those discoveries.
