Learning Objectives
At the completion of this educational session, participants will:
  1. Understand the epidemiological overlap between HIV and cytomegalovirus and why this might be important.
  2. Realize that asymptomatic CMV replication is frequent in HIV-infected subjects, and discuss what this might mean clinically.
  3. Appreciate ingenious strategies developed by CMV to escape host immune responses allowing lifelong infection.
Presenter Bio
Sara Weibel, MD
Sara Gianella Weibel is a specialist in infectious diseases and a researcher in the area of translational virology, molecular biology and immunology. Her main research focus gravitates around the study of HIV-1 at different levels. Current research ranges from investigating HIV transmission dynamics in the male genital tract and interactions with co-infecting viruses, especially Cytomegalovirus, to characterizing the establishment of the latent viral reservoir during primary HIV infection, and investigating clinical complications related to persistent immune activation. Her work also involves bioinformatics to characterize viral evolution during and after HIV transmission and viral dynamics between anatomic compartments.
