2020 Center for Global Health Research Scholar Poster Session

The scholars of 2020 faced an unprecedented challenge as well as novel opportunities. As the 2020 CGH University Scholar cohort was prevented from traveling due to the pandemic, the Center for Global Health partnered with Schools across Grounds as well as organizations at UVA like the Global Infectious Disease Institute (GIDI) to create faculty-mentored student research opportunities within the context of COVID-19 research and other innovative remote research opportunities.
