Seattle-lite: Pre-Conference Workshops -- Watch Online

February 14, 2017

The commitment to providing all presentations online as open access educational resources is one of the most impressive aspect of the annual CROI meetings.

Options include to watch the presentations with slide, download audio only or as podcasts, pause, repeat, enlarge slides to catch the details -- and that the programme become available within 24 hours of the presentations.

And every year, before the main conference, state-or-the-art lectures provide sharp overviews of key subjects. Each lecture reviews current knowledge on the subject and set the background for the new research that will presented during the main conference.

So these lectures are already online -- and are an excellent way to spend an hour or two to sharpen your knowledge.
