Dear Doctors, Professors and Dear Friends,

The « 9th International Workshop on HIV Persistence during Therapy » will be held in Miami, from December 10-13, 2019.

It is the only scientific event tackling the topics of HIV Persistence, HIV Reservoirs and HIV Cure that attracts, every 2 years, VIPs and young investigators. Its quality increase at each edition, with more and more fresh data not yet shown elsewhere nor published.

To guarantee this high quality of scientific exchanges the number of seats is limited and the abstract selection is very strict.

On behalf of the Steering Committee, I want to thank all the institutions supporting this event, either private (Pharma, AmfAR, University of Miami,…) or public (NIH, NIAID, ANRS,…).

We still have a huge challenge ahead: « curing » HIV infection! I bet that this 9th edition of the workshop will allow us to take steps forward.

Alain Lafeuillade, MD
