The fourth International Workshop on the Microbiome in HIV will take place on October 16-17, 2018, in Rockville, MD.
The 4th International Workshop on the Microbiome in HIV
The understanding of the human microbiome continues to grow rapidly; however information on the role of HIV infection on changes in the microbiome, and the role of the microbiome in HIV transmission, prevention, pathogenesis and treatment is still limited. While 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 research leaders from both the broader Microbiome field, as well as HIV/Microbiome investigators, oral abstract presentations and poster presentations. 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.
Registration is free. There will also be a Young Investigator Scholarship program to support travel, to encourage participation of emerging investigators.
The program including the speakers can be found at the event website.
We hope that you would distribute this to your CFAR membership. For specific questions, please contact the Organizing Secretariat Kun-Chieh Wu.
