Just as pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training this weekmany HIV specialists are gearing up for the 17th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI)which starts this Tuesday in San Francisco.
(I don’t suppose many people see the link between those two events. Oh well.)
And since the “pocket program” to the Conference has been available since last weekbelow is a highly-subjective (admittedly developed-world centric) list of potentially important presentationsin a somewhat random order. Apologies ahead of time for leaving off something of great importancemost likely buried somewhere deep in the poster presentations.
(*Disclosure: I’m a co-author on these presentations.)
