HIV vaccines: prospects for the future

The 2014 Cent Gardes HIV Vaccine Conference will be devoted to the study of these different approaches to establish an update on where we stand and determine what appears to be the most promising "prospects for the future".

Objectives

  • To provide the state of the art on the B-cell and T-cell responses to HIV infection, the role of antibodies and cytotoxic T lymphocytes in protection against HIV infection and the development of an effective immune response through vaccination.

  • To describe current challenges and highlight new perspectives in the development of an effective HIV vaccine.

  • To allow high-level exchanges within the scientific community, foster comparisons between various vaccine models and strategies, create collaborative approaches and help them move forward.
