Next week, HIV.gov will be sharing updates on the latest HIV research from the 2021 virtual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). Watch for blog posts as well as live video interviews on Facebook and Twitter.
CROI is an annual scientific meeting that brings together top researchers from around the world to present and discuss the latest studies and other developments that can help accelerate global progress in the response to HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Thousands of HIV and infectious disease researchers will gather virtually this year for this four-day forum for translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against these diseases. Among the studies that will be presented are many that have been supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
HIV.gov’s coverage will feature live video interviews on Facebook Live and on Twitter about research highlights from the conference with Dr. Carl Dieffenbach, Director of the Division of AIDS at NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Watch and share your questions on HIV.gov’s Facebook page or on Twitter at @HIVgov:
- Monday, March 8, 2021 at 4:30 PM (EST)
- Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 5:30 PM (EST)
Follow HIV.gov on Facebook or Twitter for schedule updates and reminders about these interviews. If you don’t catch a livestream, the recorded video of each interview will be available after the live event so you can 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.
Beginning next Tuesday, HIV.gov also will share blog posts featuring those video interviews as well as other HIV research news from our federal partners. So, if you miss the interviews, you can catch up on them here on the blog.
