joint with Viral Immunity and Host Gene Influence
Organizer(s): Gunilla B. Karlsson Hedestam, Andrew McMichael and Christopher J. MillerDate: March 21 - 26, 2012
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
The 2012 Keystone Symposia meeting on HIV Vaccines will focus on basic aspects of immunology and HIV-1 virology to highlight issues that challenge the field. The genetic diversity of circulating HIV-1 variants puts extreme demands on the quality of the response a prophylactic vaccine will need to elicit. Most likely, conserved viral determinants need to be targeted and the response must be sustained over time. To facilitate a broad and open discussion around these topics, the symposium will convene expert investigators from the HIV-1 vaccine field as well as a number of basic immunologists. Aspects of natural HIV-1 infection of direct relevance to the development of a vaccine, such as viral transmission and viral escape from immune responses, will be addressed in joint sessions with the parallel meeting on Viral Immunity and Host Gene Influence. Speakers will also be invited to present in the workshops and in the oral sessions based on submitted abstracts.
