Symposium on Antiviral Drug Resistance

The fifth HIV DRP Symposium on Antiviral Drug Resistance, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute's HIV Drug Resistance Program and cosponsored by the University of Pittsburgh, will be held Nov. 14-17 at the Westfields Conference Center in Chantilly, Va.

The symposium series brings together researchers in a variety of virus systems to exchange new information on viral targets for therapy, on antiviral drugs and on resistance to these drugs. Each session focuses on a different class of molecular targets for antiviral therapy, with emphasis on normal structure and function, interactions with antiviral drugs and the evolutionary basis and specific mechanisms of viral resistance.

The program will include invited speakers as well as oral and poster presentations. Scheduled speakers include Ronald Desrosiers, Kai Simons, Joseph Sodroski and others. For more information, including online registration and submission of abstracts, visit
