Keystone Symposia to Mark 25th Anniversary of its First HIV/AIDS Meeting
Date:3/18/2009

SILVERTHORNE, Colo., March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology will mark the 25th anniversary of its first HIV/AIDS meeting in 1984 when it convenes its scientific conferences on "Prevention of HIV/AIDS" and "HIV Immunobiology: From Infection to Immune Control" at Keystone Resort in Colorado, March 22-27, 2009. More than 850 scientists from around the world will attend.

These joint conferences will commence with a keynote address by Dr. Francoise Barre-Sinoussi, the 2008 Nobel Laureate in Medicine. In the mid-80s, Barre-Sinoussi co-discovered the virus that causes AIDS - Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) - along with colleague Dr. Luc Montagnier. Barre-Sinoussi is Head of the Retroviral Infection Control Unit at Institut Pasteur in Paris and won the 2008 Nobel Prize for this discovery.

Keystone Symposia's first conference on AIDS in 1984 was widely credited with catalyzing a consensus that AIDS was caused by a retrovirus. It was also the first open scientific meeting dedicated exclusively to the topic.

While there is still no cure or vaccine for AIDS, various advances in anti-retroviral drug therapy have prolonged life for those living with the virus. According to UNAIDS, 33 million individuals worldwide were estimated to be infected with HIV in 2007, and there were 2.7 million new infections and 2 million deaths worldwide.

The conferences are part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, which is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As part of this support, the foundation has funded 85 Keystone Symposia Global Health Travel Awards. These make it possible for scientists, postdoctoral scholars and students from countries where the disease is especially prevalent to travel to the conference. In addition, IAVI (International AIDS Vaccine Initiative) funded four awards. The winners come from 46 countries, and, fo
