I've been at the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI)Exit Disclaimer this week in Boston. As we mentioned in earlier posts and tweets, the CROI conference committee has been making scientific session available as webcasts and podcastsExit Disclaimer.

As Dr. Valdiserri mentioned in last week's post, "The conference provides a critically important global forum for basic scientists, clinicians, and global health researchers to present, discuss, and critique their investigations into the epidemiology and biology of human retroviruses and the diseases they produce with the ultimate goal of translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against the AIDS epidemic—at home and abroad."

We encourage you to take a look at the video, audio, slides and downloads that are available on the conference siteExit Disclaimer. It's another example of how new media helps to level the playing field - providing us all with access to information, like the research and news coming from CROI. And continue to stay tuned to this blog for Dr. Valdiserri's updates.
