In 2019, the IAS Towards an HIV Cure initiative, in collaboration with the International Coalition to Eliminate Hepatitis B (ICE-HBV), will organize a 1.5 day HIV & HBV Cure Forum on 20 & 21 July 2019, immediately preceding the 10th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019).
Following the success of the 2017 HIV Cure & Cancer Forum, the 2019 Forum will focus specifically on the intersection between the scientific efforts in hepatitis B (HBV) and HIV cure research, and seek to merge these two disciplines to accelerate the pace of discovery in cure research for the two fields.
The Forum co-chairs represent an international cohort of experts in the HIV and HBV cure fields:
We invite you to submit your latest research, specifically on the intersection between the scientific efforts in hepatitis B (HBV) and HIV cure research. Abstracts submitted in any of the following areas will be considered for oral or poster presentation at the HIV & HBV Cure Forum.
To submit an abstract, please use the IAS 2019 abstract submission system, and use the relevant tick box to indicate you would like your abstract to be considered. Deadline for submission is 22 January 2019.
