joint with HIV Vaccines: Adaptive Immunity and Beyond
Organizer(s): J. Victor Garcia-Martinez, Daria J. Hazuda and Dan R. LittmanDate: March 09 - 14, 2014
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
This meeting is focused on the latest breakthroughs in basic and translational HIV research with an emphasis on mechanistic models. It presents a detailed tour of all the key steps of virus replication from infection to AIDS. The program seamlessly incorporates key aspects of HIV biology including: 1) Virus entry/exit into/from the cell; 2) Entry into the host; 3) Virus-host genetics and co-evolution; 4) Virus-host interactions and responses; 5) Pathogenesis; 6) Reservoirs, latency and reactivation; and 7) HIV and the microbiome at the mucosa. Strong emphasis will be given to these and other areas well represented in the abstracts submitted. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting on “HIV Vaccines: Adaptive Immunity and Beyond,” which shares opening and closing keynote addresses and two plenary sessions with this meeting.
