The 36th Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS (NHP) will be in Seattle, Washington from Oct 2-5, 2018.

The HIV pandemic continues to have an enormous impact on the health and well-being of the world’s population.  Despite sustained efforts to eradicate the disease, about 36.7 million people were living with HIV worldwide in 2016, with about 1.8 million new cases of HIV each year. Important advances in prevention and treatment have significantly impacted infection and survival rates, however more work is essential to prevent future infections and provide relief to already infected individuals.

The Washington National Primate Research Center at the University of Washington is hosting the 36th Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS at Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle from October 2-5, 2018. The principle theme of this year’s meeting will be “clinical translation of nonhuman primate studies,” with the objective to stress the importance of translation of nonhuman primate studies to clinical studies and interventions. This annual meeting is the leading forum for the exchange of the latest developments in AIDS research using nonhuman primates and attracts more than 250 of the world’s foremost researchers to share their findings and ideas for preventing the spread of AIDS. Findings and outcomes from this symposium will have a global audience.
