After the very successful 4th edition, we are pleased to announce the 5th International Workshop on HIV & Aging, to be held on 20 - 21 October 2014 at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel in Baltimore, MD, USA
With an aging HIV-infected population – and suggestions that HIV itself may cause conditions normally associated with aging – there is a pressing need for more scientific dialog on this topic. The annual international Workshop on HIV & Aging was initiated five years ago as a unique and much needed platform for international scientific exchange on the increasingly recognized problems of HIV and aging.
As in previous years, the 2014 - edition will gather a crossdisciplinary team of experts and trainees involved in HIV and aging research, in order to present and discuss the latest developments and strategies for the future, in an interactive and science - focused setting.
The meeting will have a two day program consisting of invited lectures, abstract-driven scientific presentations and poster sessions. The latest developments will be reviewed and evaluated in order to identify important topics for future research, develop better approaches to treatment, and create a strategic agenda for future management problems associated with HIV and aging. This workshop is intended as a small, focused meeting to encourage scientific dialogue among all attendees, including presenters.
We invite you to attend the 5th International Workshop on HIV & Aging and encourage you to submit abstracts on your research in this field. We hope to see you in Baltimore!
