  • HIV 2015: Using Phylogenetics to Enhance the HIV Response

    Thursday, June 4, 2015 | 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the Microbiology & Infectious Diseases Discussion Group at the New York Academy of Sciences

    Rapid advances in molecular genetics and bio-informatics allow more and better data on the phylogeny of HIV to be collected. The genetic diversity among HIV strains within individual patients, communities and globally allows the dynamics of transmission and evolution of the virus to be studied in ever greater detail. The implications for drug resistance, vaccine development, transmission networks and evaluation of prevention interventions are beginning to be understood. The challenge is to translate the new science into more effective ways to prioritize the HIV response and to monitor the impact of different intervention approaches. This meeting brings together scientists, policy makers, and international organizations dedicated to advancing our scientific knowledge of HIV and translating that information into the most effective programs for reducing transmission of the virus.
