16th Annual International Meeting of the Institute of Human Virology

The 16th Annual International Meeting highlights breakthrough science on the path to curing HIV and AIDS and preventing its continued spread through the development of an effective vaccine. At the core is fundamental research that advances critical insights into HIV pathogenesis and the complexities of the host immune response. The meeting also addresses advances in treatment of HIV and the rapidly growing body of knowledge concerning Hepatitis C and its potential for cure. In light of the fundamental insights emerging in cancer research, the role of viruses in causing cancer, and the convergence of knowledge about how viruses impact fundamental pathways to cancer, the meeting highlights the latest advances. The magnitude of the global epidemic requires that scientists from all continents be engaged in translating best practices to the benefit of the millions dependent on expanded access to treatment. At the core of the meeting, that has its roots in the earliest days of human retrovirology, is the engagement of top experts in presentation of latest findings and lively debate of their implication, and dialogue focused on stimulating new insights and fostering collaboration between world class scientists and centers. Expert virologists, immunologists, clinicians, public health researchers, representatives from the pharmaceutical industry, and scientific program leaders describe the current status of human viral disease worldwide, present the latest information on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, and sustain a forum for establishing and expanding collaborative research programs. A special emphasis of this year’s meeting invites the next generation of scientists to submit research abstracts for podium and poster presentation.
