The workshop is geared towards basic and clinical scientists who are interested in engaging in HIV 'Cure' research.  Participants learn about the latest tools to quantify the latent reservoir in blood and tissue and the landscape of new strategies needed to achieve long term HIV remission. These include both reducing persistent HIV and boosting immunity. Strategies for conducting trials of cure interventions in the clinic in adults and children and considerations for cure research in resource limited settings, and strengthening community engagement.
