25th Annual Meeting of the Groups Studying the Structures of AIDS-Related Systems and Their Application to Targeted Drug Design
NIGMS invites you to the 25th Annual AIDS-Related Structural Biology meeting to be held at the NIH on March 28-30, 2011. 
Since 1987, NIGMS has supported research and center grants to determine the structure of AIDS-related proteins.  The focus of NIGMS-supported HIV studies has evolved from determining the structures of AIDS-related proteins and developing structure-based drug design techniques to identifying mechanisms of drug resistance and host proteins related to the HIV life cycle.  This year marks the 25th anniversary of the creation of this initiative by former NIH Director Dr. Jim Wyngaarden and Dr. Marvin Cassman, former director of the Biophysics and Physiological Sciences program at NIGMS.  The meeting will provide the community with an opportunity to reflect on past accomplishments and describe current advances and develop ideas for future NIGMS AIDS-related funding opportunities.  
The meeting will take place on the NIH campus in Bethesda. Plenary sessions will cover the HIV life cycle, host-pathogen interactions, imaging, latency, viral host recognition and structure-based drug design and resistance. The first two days will also include afternoon poster sessions and breakout discussion groups on the future of NIGMS AIDS research initiatives. Principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows and students are welcome to attend. The meeting is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
