The 17th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2010) is a scientifically focused meeting of the world's leading researchers working to understand, prevent, and treat HIV/AIDS and its complications.
The subjects that will be highlighted are: virology (including HIV and all other retroviruses), molecular epidemiology (including distribution and diversity of retroviruses), HIV immunology, pathogenesis of HIV-mediated Immunodeficiency, neuropathogenesis and neurologic complications, HIV transmission and primary/acute infection, preventive HIV vaccines (including preclinical candidates and clinical trials), therapeutic HIV vaccines and immune-based therapies (including cytokines), human genomics, antiretroviral therapy (preclinical, randomized clinical trials, observational studies, and complications), HIV drug resistance (including molecular mechanisms, pathogenesis, clinical implications, epidemiology, and resistance diagnostics), clinical pharmacology, complications of HIV infection, opportunistic infections (including basic science, immunology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, and other clinical studies), hepatitis virus co-infections, AIDS-related malignancies, pediatrics/adolescents, maternal/fetal, HIV in women/women's health, novel diagnostic technologies and new monitoring tools, epidemiology of HIV infection, sexually transmitted infections (non-HIV including basic science, immunology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, and other clinical studies), prevention studies (including 0, pre-exposure prophylaxis, circumcision, and behavioral interventions), and research on delivery of care in developing countries (including operational research and implementation).
CROI 2010 will present and debate controversial scientific issues, several hundred original oral abstract and poster presentations of new data, and late breakers that will consist of important preliminary research findings.
