Meeting Purpose

The Division of AIDS (DAIDS) at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH), is sponsoring a scientific meeting focused on the development of innovative strategies to cure HIV infection. The meeting will cover a comprehensive range of topics spanning basic and translational research, drug discovery and development, and clinical research.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together researchers associated with each of the three NIH-funded Martin Delaney Collaboratories, other researchers engaged in HIV cure research, investigators in complementary disciplines, and community members to share scientific results and engage in active discussion about the merits of various approaches under investigation. The hope is that these discussions will stimulate new ideas for future research projects and lead to new scientific collaborations.
