IAS 2017 will take place in Paris, France. Meeting organizers outlined the following highlights:

  • New understanding from a novel barcoded virus of how the latent HIV reservoir is reactivated following treatment interruption
  • Implications from a study of a subset of elite controllers who maintain an undetectable viral load without antiretroviral treatment (ART)
  • Latest insights on the critical steps of the viral entry process
  • Evidence on the role of lymph nodes in the development of neutralizing antibodies after immunization
  • Novel strategies to interfere with the persistence of the viral reservoir
  • Findings from a post-mortem study on HIV in the brain, and its association with neurocognition
  • Outcomes from immunotherapeutic interventions to control or “functionally cure” HIV
