4th International Workshop on HIV Persistence during Therapy

8-11 December 2009

Every other year since 2003, researcher Alain Lafeuillade has chaired a workshop on HIV persistence during therapy. The goal of the meeting is to work toward strategies for curing HIV infection, either by eradicating the virus or inducing long-term control of viral replication in the absence of ongoing treatment. The fourth meeting was held in December of 2009, and abstracts and selected slide presentations are now available online.
