HIV Workshop Focuses on Curative Strategies


Toulon, France, June 27, 2011 -- The 5th International Workshop on HIV Persistence is coming up at the end of the year, and anticipation in the HIV research community is increasing as the event draws closer. It'll be held in the West Indies this year. The location was chosen for its pleasant climate, but don't let the resorts and tropical breezes fool you. Some top quality HIV research will be disseminated at this event, and it's a tough ticket to acquire. Throughout the eight years of its existence, the Workshop on HIV Persistence has been a trend setter in research on the topic of HIV reservoirs, and why their role in finding a cure for HIV is so important.

During the workshop, seven major topics will be discussed: Basic Science & Animal Models of Viral Persistence; Cellular Biology & Reservoirs; Immunology & Reservoirs; Resistance & Reservoirs; Pharmacology, Compartments & Reservoirs; New Therapeutic Approaches; and Primary HIV Infection & Eradication Issues. Within each topic, a set of speakers will discuss their research with the group. Over the course of three days, researchers and physicians from around the world will come together and learn new ideas and innovative strategies for attacking HIV, in the hopes of one day finding a cure for the disease.

This workshop is not open to general public; in fact, there is only room for around 150 delegates. In order to attend the workshop, a prospective attendee must submit an application first. This limits the audience to only those who are truly interested in both attending and hearing what is going to be discussed at the workshop. The workshop may be taking place at a resort facility in a tropical setting, but it's nearly a 24/7 working holiday!

The 5th International Workshop is being held in St. Maarten, West Indies, from December 6-9, 2011. After an initial welcome meeting on December 6th, the workshop begins in earnest the following morning, continuing for the next three days. Some of the best minds in the HIV research field will be there, as will select policy makers who are involved in the HIV/AIDS field. The amount of new presentations on the subjects being discussed is very encouraging, and for the few people who do get to go, the information they learn will help them in their future research toward finding an HIV cure. Everyone who attends this workshop benefits in some way.

The workshop is supported by the NIH (National Institutes of Health) and the ANRS (French Agency for AIDS and Hepatitis Research).
