Upcoming Webinar on Leveraging Technological Advances to Overcome the Challenges of HIV Vaccine Development

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - On Thursday, October 20, 2016, Xtalks will host a complimentary webinar featuring Dr. Christos J. Petropoulos, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Monogram Biosciences, and Vice President of LabCorp, as the presenter.

Over the past three decades, HIV-1 infection has transformed from a progressive fatal disease to a stable and manageable chronic viral infection, thanks to consistent advances in antiretroviral (ARV) drug treatments. Yet, despite this progress, more than 1 million people died from AIDS-related illnesses last year. The greatest hope to control and eventually defeat the ongoing global HIV/AIDS epidemic is through an effective vaccine.

Join Dr. Petropoulos as he discusses recent technological advances that have illuminated promising new approaches for immunogen design, vaccine delivery and vaccination. He'll also discuss the scientific challenges faced and vaccine development opportunities that are re-invigorating the pursuit of an HIV vaccine.
