CROI 2017: Basic science review

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) continues to be the preeminent gathering for HIV/AIDS researchers. It provides a forum in which investigators involved in all aspects of research on HIV/ AIDS and related conditions can present and be updated on the latest scientific developments in the field. In 2017, basic research continued to be strongly represented at the conference. Most of the presentations focused on mechanisms of viral persistence in the face of effective antiretroviral therapy as well as approaches to measuring viral reservoirs and intervening in those reservoirs. The intermix of basic and clinical research presentations provided a dynamic forum for the sharing of knowledge that is crucial to moving the field forward.
