Really Rapid Review: CROI 2013, Atlanta

By Paul E. Sax, M.D.

March 10, 2013

As noted previously by Carlos del Rio in his nice summary, the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) turned 20 this year. It also made it's first-ever stop in Atlanta, home of many things that begin with "C" -- CDC (note that insiders rarely say, "the CDC"), CNN, Coca Cola, and Carlos himself.

I'll spare you the boring saga of just how messed up the travel was back to the Northeast as the conference came to a close -- ugh -- and jump right in on this Really Rapid Review™, loosely organized by prevention, treatment, and complications.

Apologies if I've left out your favorite, would love to hear what I missed -- and I reserve the right to add a few based on your suggestions. As for the conference venue, the meeting rooms were comfortable, audiovisuals reliable, the posters easy to see, and there were plenty of Coca Cola products available during the breaks.

Last but not least, I don't think anyone announced where or when CROI 2014 will take place. Let the speculation begin!
