WPR and R4P

It’s been quite an interesting few weeks with acronyms. After CROI, an annual HIV/AIDS meeting, I spoke with Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) about recent progress in the fight against HIV.

I’m also honored to have been named as a co-chair for the International AIDS Society’s (IAS) Research for Prevention (R4P) conference in 2020. This is the world’s largest scientific conference focused entirely on biomedical HIV prevention research. With a huge toolkit of prevention options at our disposal and many more under development, the conference promises to be extremely exciting and relevant. If you are an HIV researcher, it would be well worth your time to consider journeying to Cape Town for the meeting next October.

My year in Australia continues to be very exciting. Last month I visited and gave a talk at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory in Geelong. Lab members from Madison have visited and met with their counterparts in Melbourne; Julie even did some lab work and generated a >500,0000 base pair DNA sequence read!
