Exploring the frontiers of retrovirology
Date:4/21/2009

BioMed Central recently announced the launch of "Frontiers of Retrovirology", an international conference that will bring together leading human retrovirus researchers to review current progress and to chart future challenges.

HIV affects 33 million individuals worldwide. To date, 25 million have died from AIDS. In 2007 alone, 2.7 million persons became newly infected with HIV-1, and 2 million new AIDS deaths were registered. A quarter century after the discovery of the HIV-1 virus, a curative or a vaccine strategy for AIDS remains elusive.

At the conference, internationally renowned researchers will deliver cutting edge presentations and present their insights into the principles guiding the life cycle of endogenous retroelements, complex human retroviruses, and their pathogenic interactions with their hosts.

The event, supported by Agence nationale de recherches sur le sida et les hpatites virales, Institut Pasteur and Institut de Gntique Humaine is taking place between 21-23 September 2009 in Montpellier, France. Speakers include:

  • Ben Berkhout, Universiteit Van Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Mauro Giacca, International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Trieste, Italy
  • Stephen Goff, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Columbia University, New York, USA
  • Rosemary Kiernan, Institut de Gntique Humaine, Montpellier, France
  • Andrew Lever, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
  • Klaus Strebel, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, USA
  • Olivier Voinnet, Institut de Biologie Moleculaire des Plantes, Strasbourg, France

Media passes for the conference are available on request.
