HIV Immunobiology: From Infection to Immune Control
joint with Prevention of HIV/AIDS
Organizer(s): Didier Trono, Dana H. Gabuzda and Robert F. Siliciano
Date: March 22 - 27, 2009
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
This meeting will highlight the latest breakthroughs in basic HIV research, ranging from the molecular bases of HIV replication to the host genetic determinants influencing viral spread and disease susceptibility; and from the intricacy of the interaction between HIV and the immune system to the most promising progress in therapeutic development. The meeting will identify new levels of possible intervention to control the progression of HIV-induced disease and, more generally, deepen our understanding of the intimate interaction between retroelements and human hosts. Dynamism will be ensured by having concise, up-to-date talks rather than lengthy lectures, by giving ample room to speakers chosen from the abstracts, and by a close coordination with the concurrent meeting on 'Prevention of HIV/AIDS'. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting, which will share a keynote address and three plenary sessions with this meeting.
