Kathleen Gärtner, on behalf of the EPIICAL consortium, successfully presented a poster at the HIV Cure and Reservoir Symposium held at the University of Ghent, Belgium on 16 – 17 September 2019.
The symposium aims to attract a wide range basic and translational researchers with an interest in HIV research or in other persistent infectious diseases. HIV stably integrated within the host cell genome is considered the final hurdle to cure one of the most important infectious diseases mankind has ever faced. This Symposium comprehensively summarizes the state of the art in HIV cure strategies and diagnostic tools to monitor therapeutic interventions. Taking place in the picturesque city of Ghent, an international expert panel discussed the newest developments in the HIV cure field, focusing on reservoir characterization and novel clinical strategies to achieve HIV cure.
The poster, “Detection of very low levels of cell-associated HIV-1 RNA in well suppressed children (CARMA study)“, is available for download here.
