Research > Events, Conferences and Seminars

The Aviralia Foundation’s main institutional tasks include promoting and supporting initiatives for events, meetings and seminars organized with qualified experts and researchers, both Italian and foreign, aimed at an exchange, at comparisons and updates on topics of scientific interest for the Foundation.

For this purpose, the Foundation’s support activities are not limited to only sponsoring these events, but also and primarily to funding (by granting research prizes and/or contributions for participating in the events) research and studies, as well as qualifying and professionally enriching young Italian researchers attending these events.

Below are listed the main conferences/events/seminars for which the Foundation’s sponsorship and/or support was requested in the last few years.

Italian Conference on AIDS and Retroviruses (ICAR)

This conference that is regularly held in Italy has represented for years the most important scientific meeting for analysis, state-of-the-art, and for an exchange among Italian and foreign experts in many key issues of basic, clinical and epidemiologic research for AIDS. The last editions focused on a scientific debate on the results obtained in immunology and pathogenic aspects, on long-term impacts of antiretroviral therapy in conditioning strategy and pharmacologic choices and on novelties regarding treatment of chronic viral hepatitis.
