This annual event honors the outstanding research accomplishments of David Derse, Ph.D., a Principal Investigator in the Center for Cancer Research's HIV Dynamics and Replication Program (HIV DRP).

Dr. Derse was Head of the Retrovirus Gene Expression Section in the HIV DRP. During his 25 years at the National Cancer Institute, he investigated the molecular mechanisms of retrovirus infection and replication, concentrating most recently on the human viruses HIV-1 and HTLV-1. In 2007, Dr. Derse and his research team discovered how HTLV-1 evades the body's natural defenses to fight off infection, a finding that may eventually lead to improved antiviral therapies and new strategies for preventing some types of cancer.

The HIV DRP sponsors the Annual David Derse Memorial Lecture and Award, with support from Hye Kyung Chung-Derse and the National Cancer Institute, to foster the scientific discourse and exchange of innovative ideas that Dr. Derse was well known for promoting throughout his scientific career.

Louis Mansky, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Diagnostic and Biological Sciences, School of Dentistry, Twin Cities & Director, Institute of Molecular Virology, University of Minnesota will deliver the twelfth lecture in this series on November 2, 2023. The title of his presentation is "Novel Insights Into Human Retrovirus Replication Through Comparative Analysis".

In addition to the Webex broadcast of the lecture and award presentation, an archived videocast will be available on the NIH VIDEOCAST WEBSITE.

We hope you will join us on November 2, 2023.
