The 5th International Workshop on HIV & Aging is taking place right now 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 has gathered 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 has a two day program consisting of invited lectures, abstract-driven scientific presentations and poster sessions. The latest developments are being 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 hope to see you at the sixth edition of the workshop in 2015!
