The 21st Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI)Exit Disclaimer takes place this week in Boston. This annual scientific meeting of the world’s leading researchers working to understand, prevent, and treat HIV/AIDS and related infectious diseases provides a vital forum for translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against these diseases. More than 4,000 HIV/AIDS research leaders from 85 countries are assembled to share the latest studies, important developments, and research methods in the ongoing battle against HIV/AIDS and related infectious diseases, including viral hepatitis.

As we’ve done in the past, we’ll share highlights from the meeting here on the blog via several video interviews that we’ll post this week and next.
