Structural Biology Related to HIV/AIDS – 2016
NIGMS and NIAID invite you to the Annual AIDS-Related Structural Biology meeting to be held at the NIH on June 23-24.
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 complexes of host and viral elements essential to the HIV life cycle. The meeting will provide the NIGMS Centers for HIV/AIDS-Related Structural Biology, NIGMS-funded Program Projects and other interested investigators an opportunity to share their progress and ideas with the community.
The meeting will take place on the NIH campus in Bethesda. Plenary sessions will cover reports from the Specialized Centers and the Program Projects, as well as sessions on HIV structural biology and virus - cell interactions. Afternoon poster sessions will provide additional opportunities for principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows and students to present and network with colleagues. The meeting is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. If you would like to submit a poster presentation, respond to “Please indicate here if you would like to present a poster for this meeting” on the Registration page and follow the instructions under the "Abstract Instructions" tab above. If you are an invited speaker, click the "Please check here if you are a speaker for this meeting" box.
In accordance with current NIH efforts to reduce paper and printing costs we will not produce abstract books. Instead, speaker and poster abstracts will be provided to meeting participants in the form of a PDF available for download on this website prior to the meeting. The PDF may also be accessed using guest wifi during the meeting.
