Date Time

Understanding early events at the sites of infection are crucial to anticipating future immune responses. Tissue biopsy studies provide important insights into the behavior of cells recruited to infection sites…but important questions remain. This session examines the interplay between these cells and transmitted HIV-1 isolates and reviews current knowledge that can be leveraged to design new prevention strategies.
