Event Details

To accommodate the overwhelming response and increased participant count, the meeting will be held at the Bethesda Marriott, 5151, Pooks Hill Rd, MD-20814 instead of the Fishers Lane location.

(Shuttle service will be provided from EVEN Hotel to the meeting venue.)

Division of AIDS Research at NIMH, in collaboration with Program from NINDS, NIAID, NIDA, NIA, NICHD, and the NIH Office of AIDS Research are pleased to host the NeuroHIV in the ART era meeting, on 10/23 and 10/24 at 5151,Pooks Hill Rd, MD-20814. 

 

Despite the effectiveness of ART, HIV-induced CNS dysfunction persists, but a significant heterogeneity in the prevalence and severity of these disturbances exists. Brain autopsy findings from HIV positive individuals on ART have revealed a paucity of the distinctive pathologic findings seen in the pre-ART era. At this critical juncture, it is important to evaluate and understand the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, the co-morbid conditions, and the chronic inflammatory state that lead to a complicated heterogenous clinical presentation. The goal of the meeting will be to review the state of the science in the NeuroHIV field and to identify key gaps in the agenda for future research. 

 

Topics:

  • Current understanding of HIV-induced neuropathogenesis and the associated clinical presentation

  • Influence of co-morbidities on pathogenesis and diagnosis of HIV/CNS disease

  • Impact of HIV-induced Inflammation & neuroimmune mediators on the CNS

  • Impact of HIV CNS reservoirs on pathogenesis and cure efforts

 


Meeting Chairs: Dr. Avindra Nath and Dr. Serena Spudich
