International Workshop on Microbiome and HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention, and Treatment 2021
After the success of the first virtual Workshop on Microbiome and HIV 2020, we are pleased to announce the International Workshop on Microbiome and HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention, and Treatment 2021, which is scheduled from 19 - 21 October 2021. The meeting will be held in a virtual format.
The interplay between human gut microbiota and the immune response is an integral component of many physiological processes, but also pathological conditions. Therefore, understanding the microbiome-immunity crosstalk is central in order to illuminate molecular mechanisms that maintain hemostasis in health, but also to decipher what goes wrong in a disease.
This rapidly evolving research area may offer a comprehensive understanding on the interplay between the HIV infection and the host immunity, and how it contributes to an altered immune status and disease pathogenesis. This ultimately may lead to the identification of novel drug targets with a distinct mode of action compared to currently available therapies. 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 the new data and their implications.
This 3-day workshop will have invited lectures by key opinion leaders, oral abstract presentations, and poster presentations. These data will contribute to translating research achievements into opportunities for the development of preventive approaches to reduce virus transmission and to provide a better understanding of the impact of the microbiome on host immunity.
Clinicians and researchers with an interest in Microbiome and HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention, and Treatment are most welcome to attend this workshop.
