HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference: Approaches to a Functional Cure for HIV Infection

October 20, 2015
National Cancer Institute at Frederick
Building 549 Conference Center

Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce that the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference: Approaches to a Functional Cure for HIV Infection will be held at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) campus in Frederick, Maryland on October 20, 2015 from 1:00 to 5:45 p.m.

The HIV Dynamics and Replication Program is hosting this half-day conference to showcase the latest findings on achieving long-term control of HIV infection in the absence of antiretroviral therapy (ART). The presentations will focus on recent progress in blocking HIV transmission, quantifying viral reservoir size and rebound kinetics, identifying potential biomarkers that predict the timing of viral rebound after stopping ART, and developing immune-potentiating compounds, effector antibodies, and other novel immunological approaches. An in-depth discussion of this recent progress will lead to new insights into the mechanisms involved in HIV persistence, which will aid in the development of more effective intervention strategies.

Invited speakers in the outstanding program include Dan Barouch (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard), Ed Berger (Laboratory of Viral Diseases, NIAID, NIH), Michael Farzan (The Scripps Research Institute), Alex Marson (University of California, San Francisco), Robert Siliciano (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Howard Hughes Medical Institute), and James B. Whitney (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard).

There is no registration fee, but participants are encouraged to register in advance, as seating is limited.

We hope you will be able to join us on October 20 at the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference: Approaches to a Functional Cure for HIV Infection .
