Date:3/20/2008

What: On Tuesday, March 25, 2008, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, will host an HIV Vaccine Summit in Bethesda, Md. as an important step in the ongoing process to examine the current direction of HIV vaccine research.

Based on the panel discussions, NIAID is seeking specific recommendations on the types of research to foster and how to attract novel vaccine research ideas.
