2016 Towards an HIV Cure Symposium

16.07.16 - 17.07.16

The IAS and the Towards an HIV Cure Stakeholder’s Advisory Board will organize the fifth annual Towards an HIV Cure Symposium in Durban, South Africa on 16 & 17 July 2016, immediately preceding the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016).

 

The symposium will continue to showcase the latest research in HIV cure, aligned with the research priorities outlined in the 2016 Global Scientific Strategy, but also provide a platform for presenting the progress of the initiative working groups and creating a fertile setting for dialogue with the broader community, through abstract driven sessions, poster exhibition sessions and roundtable discussions.  

 

The symposium will be co-chaired by Prof. Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Dr. Steven Deeks, Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and Prof. Sharon Lewin, Director of the Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, University of Melbourne.
