HANSA 2013 North European Workshop on HIV infection in the CNS

HANSA 2013, North European Workshop on HIV-infection in the CNS
26 - 27 April, 2013 in Berlin, Germany

On behalf of the program committee, we are very pleased to announce the third North European Workshop on HIV –infection in the central nervous system (HANSA 2013) to take place in Berlin, Germany, 26-27 April 2013.

While antiviral treatment has decreased the incidence of HIV-complications in the central nervous system, including HIV-associated dementia and CNS opportunistic infections, mild neurocognitive disorder continue to persist. The “NeuroAIDS-field” has been increasingly recognized as findings on CNS complications of HIV disease and their impact on people living with HIV continue to accumulate. CNS manifestations are still among the most threatening complications of HIV infection.

The aim of HANSA 2013 is to assemble clinicians and researchers together to advance our knowledge of the ongoing HIV CNS research. The conference will cover several hot and clinically relevant topics. The conference will cover both basic issues and controversies in the most recent research, and as usual there will be a lot of time allocated for discussions and interactions with the audience. New for this year is a case-based discussion session and we welcome participants to contribute with their own cases. More information about how will be sent out in connection with registration.

We look forward to your participation and are delighted to present an exciting program with some of the leading researchers and clinicians in the field as distinguished speakers.
