    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract
The HIV and AIDS pandemic ranks among the most devastating in recorded history.  Substantial research efforts over the past 30 years have led to novel discoveries with respect to the virus, its detection, and in the development of robust antiviral drugs that have transformed both the treatment and the prevention of HIV.       

This webinar will provide a historical perspective of the major milestones in HIV science, highlighting how they evolved with time and how translational research has affected treatment and prevention of HIV.  The webinar will also discuss current research directions including the scientific challenges ahead for a cure for HIV and the active efforts across globe towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

Participants will be able to:
  1. Understand the complex zoonotic origins of HIV, the early epidemic spread of HIV, and the discovery of HIV
  2. Learn about the various generations of HIV immunoassays
  3. Understand the evolution of HIV therapeutic strategies
  4. Learn about the ambitious goals of UNAIDS to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030
