HIV Vaccines
joint with Viral Immunity
Organizer(s): Wayne C. Koff, Lynn Morris and Marcus Altfeld
Date: March 21 - 26, 2010
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
Traditionally, the Keystone Joint HIV Symposia have integrated vaccines and pathogenesis to comprehensively cover the field—from HIV’s fundamental biology to its interaction with the human immune system and how to design a vaccine—and these Joint Symposia have been convened every year. Since an HIV vaccine is proving to be a particularly recalcitrant problem, a novel approach with this year's experimental format, that facilitates a wider cross-fertilization of ideas would be very valuable and would be welcomed by the broader HIV vaccine research community. To that end, the major development proposed for the 2010 Keystone HIV Vaccine Symposium is to foster innovative ideas and new collaborations with immunology and vaccinology as it pertains to other viral diseases. Specifically, we propose that a new Joint Symposium of HIV Vaccines in conjunction with Viral Immunity be convened. This Joint Symposium would retain the valuable format that includes joint and separate sessions covering general and specific principles.
