At the completion of this educational session, learners will:
1. Know factors associated with natural or induced control of HIV-1 infection.
2. Understand the role of viral reservoirs in control of HIV-1 infection without treatment.
3. Appreciate the impact of early treatment on viral reservoirs and immune responses.
Asier Sáez-Cirión is an Assistant Professor at the department of Regulation of Retroviral Infections at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, and co-president of coordinated action AC32 “HIV reservoirs” of the French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis (ANRS). In his effort to understand natural mechanisms associated with the control of HIV/SIV infection and progression to AIDS, his research focuses on the role of intrinsic and adaptive immunity and the impact of viral reservoirs in different models of spontaneous or induced control of viremia in the absence of antiretroviral therapy.
