11-12 September 2017

Symposium on state of the art HIV Cure efforts in Europe.



Stably integrated HIV inside the host cell genome is considered the final hurdle to cure one of the most important infectious diseases mankind has ever faced. Latent HIV reservoir is able to refuel infection once the treatment is stopped and therefore a better understanding of both, the composition and the size of this reservoir will be important to aid the development of cure strategies as well as to monitor the efficacy of therapeutic interventions to reduce the HIV reservoir. The HIV Cure and Reservoir Symposium will comprehensively summarize the state of the art in HIV cure strategies and diagnostic tools to monitor therapeutic interventions. The Symposium will take place in the picturesque city of Ghent, Belgium and an international expert panel will guide you through the newest developments in the HIV cure field, focusing on reservoir characterization and novel clinical strategies to achieve HIV cure.

Target audience

The symposium aims to attract a broad public of basic and translational researchers with an interest in HIV research or in other persistent infectious diseases.
