40 years of HIV science
November 29th - December 1st, 2023
Institut Pasteur, Paris, France


Forty years after its discovery, there is still no vaccine or cure for HIV. HIV research during the last four decades has nevertheless delivered major breakthroughs in our understanding of the virus replication cycle and the immune response that counteract it and provided efficient tools for the prevention of infection and progression to disease. However, continuous efforts are still needed to end the epidemic of this highly complex virus. Scientists from around the world are invited to join us in commemorating 40 years of HIV research, which has also influenced the fight against more recent pandemics.
The conference will cover multiple aspects of HIV research, including basic, translational, clinical and social viewpoints of recent data and new perspectives regarding virus-host interactions, promising new therapies, HIV cure and vaccine research.

HIV 40 years later, where are we going?

Much progress has been made in the development of tools to prevent, diagnose and treat HIV infection. However, we still do not have a vaccine and antiretroviral treatments are not curative as HIV persists in many compartments of the body. Implementation of these tools at large scale worldwide remains a critical challenge as well as the sustainability of life-long therapies. Development of an effective vaccine and of novel HIV therapeutic strategies, which both required more basic and translational science, are an absolute necessity to end the HIV epidemic. The past four decades of HIV/AIDS science are a good example of a broad comprehensive and collective response to an emerging human threat in the spirit of Louis Pasteur. This must even be developed further by extending transdisciplinary partnerships for enhancing the global response to HIV and emerging pandemics.
