To hold the workshop in the safest format, Virology Education and the Chairs have decided that the International Workshop on Microbiome in HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention, and Treatment 2020 will be a virtual program only.
Abstracts are now being accepted for the Workshop on Microbiome in HIV 2020. The deadline is 17 August 2020 (23:59 CEST).
The understanding of the human microbiome continues to grow rapidly. However information on the role of the microbiome on HIV infection pathogenesis, prevention and treatment is still limited. Whereas research in this area may be presented at major conferences, there are often limited sessions devoted to this topic as well as limited time for in-depth discussion and debate among cross-disciplinary experts on new data and their implications. The aim of this workshop is to provide increased opportunities for discussion and exchange of knowledge following formal presentation of the latest research.
The multidisciplinary nature and the significance in furthering our ability to develop novel prevention and therapeutic strategies for HIV will lead to the reduction of new HIV infections and the burden of non-communicable diseases in HIV infected subjects. We also will be able to learn how the host microbiome can influence responses to our current HIV therapies.
This 2-day event will have invited lectures by key opinion leaders, oral abstract presentations and poster presentations. Ample time will be allocated for discussion in an intimate workshop setting. The conference will be unique in its approach, as it will engage basic scientists and clinicians from the HIV field and leading scientists involved in microbiome research including bioinformatics experts.
Clinicians and researchers with an interest in Microbiome in HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention and Treatment are most welcome to attend this workshop.
We look forward to seeing you in October 2020!
