The 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) Exit Disclaimer takes place next week in Boston, and will be there. This annual scientific meeting brings together top basic, translational, and clinical researchers from around the world to share the latest studies, important developments, and best research methods in the ongoing battle against HIV/AIDS and related infectious diseases. Several thousand HIV/AIDS and infectious disease research leaders from dozens of countries will assemble at this vital forum for translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against these diseases.

As we’ve done in the past, we’ll share highlights from the conference here on the blog next week and the week following. This will include video science highlights video blogs from NIH’s Dr. Carl Dieffenbach.
