In 2017, the Towards an HIV Cure Initiative will organize a 1.5-day HIV Cure & Cancer Forum on 22 & 23 July, in Paris at Institut Curie, its partner.

The Forum will focus specifically on the interface and similarities between HIV cure and cancer research, and seek to merge these two disciplines to accelerate the pace of discovery in HIV cure research.
The Forum will be co-chaired by the French Nobel Prize Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Dr. Steven Deeks, Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (USA), and Prof. Sharon Lewin, Director of the Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, University of Melbourne (Australia).

Among the international speakers: Geneviève Almouzni and Sebastian Amigorena.

  • Create an environment to foster collaborations and merge the HIV cure and cancer disciplines;
  • Provide an opportunity for the next generation of investigators to launch their careers through interaction and discussion with peers;
