2020 HIV DRP Conference on Virus-Cell Interactions: New Approaches and Technologies

Virus-Cell Interactions: New Approaches and Technologies, a conference organized by the HIV DRP, was held on October 21, 2020. The HIV DRP organized this conference to showcase the latest research on virus–cell interactions, focusing on new approaches to understanding the mechanisms of viral pathogenesis and host antiviral defenses, with the goal of developing improved therapeutics against existing and emerging infectious diseases.

Invited speakers in the outstanding program included Stephen Elledge (Harvard Medical School and Howard Hughes Medical Institute), Timothy Henrich (University of California San Francisco), Christopher Hill (University of Utah School of Medicine), Judd Hultquist (Northwestern University), Taina Immonen (National Cancer Institute-Frederick), Daniel Kaufmann (University of Montreal), James Munro (University of Massachusetts Medical School), Tatyana Polenova (University of Delaware), and Elizabeth Wright (University of Wisconsin-Madison).

In previous years, the HIV DRP Conference showcased other topics on the discovery, development, and delivery of antiviral and immunologic approaches for the prevention and treatment of viral infection, including Therapeutic Interventions and Resistance Mechanisms; Establishment and Control of Viral Persistence; Innate Immunity: Sensing, Signaling, and Selection; Emerging Viruses: Origins, Biology, and Control of Transmission; Approaches to a Functional Cure for HIV Infection; Virus Structure: Putting the Pieces Together; Host Factors and Cofactors in HIV Infection; and Trafficking of Viral Macromolecules.
