Next week, HIV.gov will be sharing updates on the latest HIV research from the 2019 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). We’ll have posts here on the blog as well as Facebook Live interviews.
CROI is an annual scientific meeting that 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, including hepatitis C. Several thousand HIV/AIDS and infectious disease researchers from dozens of countries will gather at this four-day forum for translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against these diseases. Research supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will be presented.
HIV.gov’s coverage will feature several interviews on Facebook Live. We’ll be speaking with:
- NIH’s Dr. Carl Dieffenbach about research highlights from the conference. Watch and share your questions on HIV.gov’s Facebook page on:
- Monday, March 4, 2019 at 12:00 PM (EST)/9:00 AM (PST)
- Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at 6:00 PM (EST)/3:00 PM (PST)
- Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 6:00 PM (EST)/3:00 PM (PST)
- NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday, March 4, 2019 at 4:15 PM (EST)/1:15 PM (PST). He’ll be addressing the conference’s opening plenary session about the proposed Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.
Follow HIV.gov on Facebook or Twitter for schedule updates and reminders about these interviews or sign up for our email to get updates. If you don’t catch a livestream, the recorded video of each interview will be available on our Facebook page after the live event. We encourage everyone to watch, react, comment, and share! As always, you don’t need a Facebook account to watch the videos, but you will need one to comment and react to them on Facebook.
We will also share blog posts from CROI beginning next Tuesday. Those posts will feature our video interviews as well as news from our federal partners. So if you miss the interviews, you can catch up on them here on the blog.
In addition to HIV.gov’s coverage, you can explore conference abstracts, webcasts, electronic posters, and other resources available online at the conference website and follow the conference via Twitter at #CROI2019. Daily CROI press conferences will be webcast live and will be available for playback. Links will be provided on the conference homepage.
