HIV Cure & Cancer Forum: Deadline for abstracts and scholarships

Posted by Kimberley Meijers on April 26, 2017 at 2:52 pm

There is one week left to submit abstracts or apply for a scholarship for the International AIDS Society (IAS) HIV Cure & Cancer Forum in Paris on 22-23 July 2017. The deadline for abstract submissions and scholarship applications is 2 May 2017.

The IAS HIV Cure & Cancer Forum will explore the interface and similarities between HIV cure and cancer research, and seek to benefit from the synergies between these two disciplines to accelerate the pace of discovery in HIV cure research. The meeting will be co-chaired by Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Steven Deeks and Sharon Lewin.

Abstracts will be considered in the following areas for oral or poster presentation:

  • Burden of disease
  • Epigenetics
  • Immunology and immunotherapy
  • Gene therapy
  • Interferon in HIV and cancer
  • Social and behavioural sciences

Presenters of selected abstracts will receive automatic registration to the IAS HIV Cure & Cancer Forum. Please note that only abstracts that focus on the interface between HIV cure and cancer will be considered.



Please note that abstracts for the IAS HIV Cure & Cancer Forum are submitted separately from the 9th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2017). If you have an abstract related to HIV cure or remission research, we encourage you to submit to the main conference programme of IAS 2017. Late-breaker submissions for IAS 2017 are open until 15 May 2017.

A limited number of scholarships are available for young investigators from both the HIV cure and cancer fields, investigators from resource-limited settings, and community representatives. The deadline for scholarship applications is 2 May 2017.
