Virology Education invites you to the 6th International Workshop on Microbiome in HIV Pathogenesis, Prevention and Treatment

The event will be held virtually from October 7 to 8, 2020.


The understanding of the human microbiome continues to grow rapidly. However information on the role of the microbiome on HIV infection pathogenesis, prevention and treatment is still limited. The aim of the workshop is to provide increased opportunities for discussion and exchange of knowledge following formal presentation of the latest research. The 2-day virtual event will have invited lectures by key opinion leaders, oral abstract presentations and poster presentations.

The conference will be unique in its approach, as it will engage basic scientists and clinicians from the HIV field and leading scientists involved in microbiome research including bioinformatics experts.

The preliminary program can be found on their website.

The Union invites you to the 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health

The event will be taking place from 20-24 October 2020.


The conference theme, ‘Advancing Prevention’, draws on commitments made in the political declaration adopted at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis in 2018, which promised to end the tuberculosis (TB) emergency by preventing hundreds of thousands of infections and deaths every year.

Prevention is a key element to ending TB, reducing tobacco use and improving lung health worldwide. Yet prevention has been neglected as a research and operational priority in this sector – and has never featured as a conference theme to date. With the threat of COVID-19, prevention is critical for limiting its repercussions on global public health. The 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health will put prevention at centre stage in this conversation.
