2nd International Workshop on Microbiome in HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention and Treatment
November 17, 2016 @ 8:00 am - November 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
November 17-18, 2016
Building 10: Masur Auditorium on NIH Campus
The understanding of the human microbiome continues to grow rapidly; however information on the role of HIV infection on changes in the microbiome is still limited. Whereas research in this area may be presented at major conferences, there is often limited time for in-depth discussion and debate among cross-disciplinary experts on new data and their implications. The aim of this workshop is to provide increased opportunities for discussion and exchange of knowledge following formal presentation of the latest research.
This 2 day event will have invited lectures by key opinion leaders, oral abstract presentations and poster presentations. Ample time will be allocated for discussion in an intimate workshop setting. The conference will be unique in its approach, as it will engage basic scientists and clinicians from the HIV field and leading scientists involved in microbiome research including bioinformatics experts.
