The Seventh International Workshop on HIV Persistence during Therapy, scheduled for December 8-11, 2015 in Miami.
Online PR News – 29-June-2014 – Miami, Florida, USA – We are delighted to announce the Seventh International Workshop on HIV persistence during Therapy, scheduled for December 8-11, 2015 in Miami.
Since the first edition of this HIV workshop in 2003 in St Maarten, the issue of “HIV Persistence & Reservoirs” has become more relevant, not only for the biologist but also for the clinician facing the problem of the long-term control of this persistent retroviral infection.
Several meetings have now included reviews on these topics in their program, but this workshop is unanimously recognized as “The Reference Workshop on HIV reservoirs & Eradication Strategies.” Our main objective is to keep it driven by Science and new data.
The program format will continue to follow the past successes and include presentations of new, unpublished data and a panel of experts to sum up the current advances in the field. The number of participants is now limited to 250. As in the past, abstract selection will be extremely rigorous and conducted by the Scientific Committee, focusing on new progress in the field.
The steering Committee contains 3 researchers:
Alain Lafeuillade (Toulon, France)
David Margolis (Chapel Hill, USA)
Mario Stevenson (Miami, USA)
The scientific Committee contains 32 international key leaders on HIV Persistence, including Professor Robert Gallo who discovered HIV, among others.
The workshop is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the French Agency for AIDS research (ANRS). It is also accredited by the University of Massachsetts (UMASS).
The HIV persistence workshop offers plenary presentations, presentation of unpublished work and presentation of scientific posters.
Participants must submit a registration request before September 6, 2015.
This meeting is organized by scientists for scientists and is also open to media to share the advances towards a HIV cure.
About the HIV Persistence Workshop: it is held every other year to make a dent in the universe in the war against HIV.
