Research training and institutional capacity building in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) have been critical to advance our understanding of HIV and AIDS and identify novel approaches to prevention and treatment. A panel of senior HIV and AIDS research leaders from LMICs reflect on how their early research training enabled them to become leaders in the field and facilitate discoveries and development of drugs and best practices. As many research challenges remain, the discussion provides an opportunity for attendees to recommend priorities for supporting research training and institutional capacity building in LMICs in the future.
