Timothy Ray Brown (“The Berlin Patient”) is thought to be the only individual functionally cured of HIV. Through a combination of chemotherapy followed by transplantation of HIV-resistant hematopoietic cells, his clinicians provided an important proof of concept that the latent reservoirs of HIV can be eradicated using nontraditional methods. On behalf of the HIV-affected community, he currently serves as an advocate for HIV cure efforts performed by researchers and clinicians across the globe.

This forum will present scientific data from defeatHIV
researchers including Fred Hutch’s Drs. Keith Jerome and
Hans-Peter Kiem, and industry partners and collaborators
actively involved in HIV cure efforts on how progress in the lab
is being translated into clinical studies. Timothy Ray Brown
also will be participating in the day’s agenda.

Refreshments and light lunch buffet will be provided.
