Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce our conference

The HIV Dynamics and Replication Program (HIV DRP) is organizing this conference to showcase the latest research on the use of viruses and viral vectors as tools for research and medicine and as agents that are domesticated by mammalian systems to serve beneficial functions for the host.
