Dear friends, dear colleagues,
We are delighted to announce that the 10th International Workshop on HIV Persistence during Therapy, is scheduled to be live on December 13-16, 2022, at the Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel in Miami.
Since the first edition of this workshop in 2003 in St Maarten, the issues of HIV Persistence and reservoirs have become increasingly relevant, not only for the biologist but also for the clinician facing the problem of long-term control of this persistent retroviral infection.
Several meetings have now included reviews on these topics in their program, but this biennial workshop is unanimously recognized as THE reference workshop on HIV reservoirs and eradication strategies.
To this end, the program format will continue to follow the past successes and include presentation of new, unpublished data and a panel of experts to sum up the current data in the field. Priority will be given to the quality of scientific research and new data. We encourage highly animated scientific exchanges, in a relaxed and friendly environment. To achieve these goals, the number of participants is still voluntarily limited and participants must have submitted abstracts for selection as either an oral or poster presentation. As in previous years, selection will be extremely rigorous and conducted by the Scientific Committee.
We also would like to continue improving the participation of young investigators, in particular through abstract submission, but also through grants. These scholarships have been made possible by both the National Institutes of Health, partnerships and the Steering Committee involvement. We are all very grateful for this development that we hope will bring new energy, thinking and ideas to the field.
We are very happy to meet up with you again in Miami this December, wishing you all an enjoyable and fruitful workshop!
The Steering Committee
