This year’s event is titled More Than Three Decades: Inspiring HIV Discoveries Through Basic Science Research.

The event will bring together researchers from across the NIH and other experts in the HIV/AIDS field to discuss the role basic scientific research plays in developing effective treatment and prevention tools in the ongoing fight against HIV.
