The goal of the West Coast Retrovirus Meeting is to bring together a stellar group of retrovirologists from all over the country in a focused workshop-style meeting.  The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss new information on all aspects of Retrovirology. The meeting theme is Antiviral Innovations and will cover multiple subjects including antiviral drug development, viral budding and viral-host interactions.  The intent is to generate vigorous discussion, hatch new ideas, foster collaborations, and spawn fresh insights into the biology of retroviruses and HIV/AIDS.
