In honour of the esteemed legacy of Dr. Dick Smith, a visionary pioneer in HIV/AIDS patient treatment and education in Manitoba, Research Manitoba has established the Dr. Dick Smith Postdoctoral Fellowship in HIV Epidemiology. This fellowship aims to support an exceptional postdoctoral researcher dedicated to advancing the understanding and management of HIV epidemiology in Manitoba. Dr. Smith’s tireless efforts and groundbreaking contributions in HIV/AIDS patient care, coupled with his impactful strides in public education initiatives surrounding HIV, serve as the guiding inspiration for this fellowship.
The successful candidate will be committed to innovative research in HIV epidemiology and conduct research focused on Manitoba data, outcomes and demographics with an emphasis on Manitoba specific opportunities for improvements related to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and education. This fellowship will focus on communities disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS and may include research in areas such as disease transmission dynamics, prevention strategies, treatment interventions, community engagement and healthcare disparities.
