About the CROI 2017 Conference
March 8, 2017
In an interview on behalf of IFARA, Fred Schaich spoke with conference chair Susan Buchbinder about the 2017 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. The conference began in 1993 and has expanded significantly since, including issues beyond the core HIV topic. For example, this year included a themed discussion on the Zika virus. Forty percent of the 4,000 attendees come from 90 different countries, helping to make this a truly international gathering. There are more than 1,000 presentations over the conference's four days. Many of these cover distinct topics in depth, in addition to the oral presentations on specific studies. Another important aspect is the networking among doctors from various disciplines who exchange information in informal one-on-one meetings.
