6th IAS Conference On HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention

Towards an HIV Cure: Insight into Residual Viral Replication, Establishment of Reservoirs and Understanding Mechanisms of Persistence WEWS03

Type:
Workshop Back
Venue: MR 2
Time: 14:30 - 17:30, 20.07.2011
Code: WEWS03
Facilitators: Paula Munderi, Uganda
Guido Silvestri, United States
Christine Rouzioux, France
Nicolas Chomont, United States

Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, Biology and Pathogenesis Researchers, Clinicians

Seating Limit: 100

The purpose of the workshop is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills they need to begin or pursue their research on HIV persistence and viral reservoirs. International experts will present state of the art and future challenges in the field. Several areas will be covered, including immunological and virological mechanisms of persistence, tools to measure viral reservoirs, animal models and therapeutic strategies aimed at eradicating HIV. Presentations will focus on practical information pertaining to viral reservoirs (including methods, samples and description of cohorts). In addition, speakers will provide the audience with the background information needed to undergo lab research on the topics of viral persistence, latency and eradication.
