This second biennial HIV Research for Prevention (HIVR4P) conference is being held this year in Chicago from 17 to 21 October.
Although the conference programme is now online, this doesn’t currently link to the study abstracts, and the poster abstract file is currently password protected until either the study has been presented or the conference ends.
These are also available, including for posters via an App that is free to download, though this is also password protected until the end of the meeting.
The programme this year includes a strong focus on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) including the pipeline for new formulations and compounds.
Importantly all oral sessions will be webcast 24 hours after the presentation.
At the end of the meeting, abstracts are published as an open-access supplement to AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses (www.liebertpub.com/aid). Many conference posters will be available to view and download online (www.abstractstosubmit.com/hivr4p2016/eposter).
Webcasts (available 24 hours after presentations):
