CROI 2019: advances in basic science understanding of HIV

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections remains the preeminent venue for the sharing and dissemination of research advances in the field of HIV and AIDS research. The 26th conference in Seattle featured highlights including news of additional individuals who experienced long-term virologic remission following a bone marrow transplant. The factors driving reservoir persistence gathered a lot of interest, as well as data presented on new factors involved in regulating HIV-1 latency. The effectiveness of the conference in disseminating new findings is further enhanced through themed discussions that focus the attention of participants on abstracts with a common theme. In addition, the Program Committee workshops provide an outstanding venue, directed to new investigators, fellows, and students, to receive updates on different aspects of HIV and AIDS research. These sessions add to the information-sharing environment provided by the conference.
