Event Summaries About HIV/AIDS

Strengthening the Research Workforce of Latina/Hispanic Female Investigators to Address HIV Contextual Factors Affecting Women with HIV

Date/Time:

Location: San Diego, CA; Pre-Conference Learning Institute at American Public Health Association Annual Meeting

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research hosted a meeting to address diversity mentoring programs to strengthen the HIV research workforce of Latina/Hispanic female investigators with added focus to address contextual factors affecting women living with HIV.

Neuroimaging in HIV: Novel Imaging Technologies for Detection of Persistent HIV and Associated Inflammation/Pathology in the Brain

Date/Time:

Location: Rockville, MD

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research hosted a workshop to discuss the novel imaging technologies that can be used to detect persistent HIV in the central nervous system (CNS) as well as understand the pathways and mechanisms leading to CNS dysfunction in the antiretroviral therapy era.

Sponsors: NIMH Division of AIDS Research

Anti-Retroviral Therapy-Mediated Mental Health Side Effects Workshop

Date/Time:

Location: Rockville, MD

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research convened a workshop focused on the neuropsychiatric side effects of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART), and the potential for ART-mediated neurological toxicity when used across the lifespan of HIV.

Sponsors: NIMH Division of AIDS Research

NeuroHIV in the ART era

Date/Time:

Location: Bethesda, MD

Description:

Despite the effectiveness of Anti-retroviral therapy (ART), HIV-induced CNS dysfunction persists, but a significant heterogeneity in the prevalence and severity of these disturbances still exist. Brain autopsy findings from HIV positive individuals on ART have revealed a paucity of the distinctive pathologic findings seen in the pre-ART era.

Sponsors: NIMH Division of AIDS Research

Approach to Consortium Studies of CNS HIV Escape

Date/Time:

Location: Pollenzo, Italy

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research sponsored a session on “Approach to Consortium Studies of CNS HIV Escape” that was held in conjunction with the Seventh International Meeting on HIV infection in the CNS.

Sponsors: NIMH Division of AIDS Research

Blood– brain barrier and HIV reservoirs in the CNS—formation and eradication

Date/Time:

Location: Krakow, Poland

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research hosted a session entitled “Blood– brain barrier and HIV reservoirs in the CNS—formation and eradication” in conjunction with the 20th International Symposium on Signal Transduction at the Blood–Brain Barriers.

Sponsors: NIMH Division of AIDS Research

HIV PrEP Implementation Science Administrative Supplement Meeting

Date/Time:

Location: Bethesda, MD

Description: The NIMH Division of AIDS Research sponsored a meeting to advance the science of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) implementation.

Innovative Measures of Medication Adherence for HIV Treatment and Prevention

Date/Time:

Location: Rockville, MD

Description: The NIMH Division of AIDS Research co-sponsored a meeting with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to advance the next-generation of HIV medication adherence.

Translating Mechanistic Stress Biology in the Context of HIV

Date/Time:

Location: Rockville, MD

Description:

The NIMH Division of AIDS Research sponsored a workshop to identify significant and unique courses of study aimed at elucidating the complex behavioral and biological relationships between stress and HIV.

Global HIV-1 CSF Escape Consortium

Date/Time:

Location: Bethesda, MD

Description: The NIMH Division of AIDS Research, with support from the NIH Office of AIDS Research, sponsored a meeting to establish a Global HIV-1 CSF Escape Consortium. Despite stable and successful control of HIV with Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) in the periphery, some patients still have detectable HIV virus in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), termed “CSF escape.” Meeting participants discussed prevalence rates, causes, and key scientific research priorities pertaining to HIV-1 CSF escape.
