SEATTLE In this video, Elaine J. Abrams, MD, professor of epidemiology and pediatrics at Columbia University, and clinical vice chair for the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections program committee, provides some insight into the many presentations occurring throughout the week.

“This has already been a sensational meeting,” Abrams says.

Specifically, she highlights a presentation given by Anthony S. Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, about the effort to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States.

CROI provides a forum for scientists, researchers, epidemiologists and public health officials to share and learn about the latest developments in battle against HIV/AIDS, and Abrams says Fauci’s talk “set the tone.”

Other presentations this week will focus on the impact of aging and comorbidities on HIV care and new drugs and dosing for children and pregnant women.
