Title: Molecular Cluster Investigations in HIV
Speakers: Joshua Herbeck, PhD and Richard Lechtenberg, MPH
Dr. Josh Herbeck and Richard Lechtenberg, MPH, will discuss the basics of molecular cluster investigations. This will include the basics of how clustering is identified, who is included in molecular cluster investigations, and how does this relate to drug resistance testing. The very recently identified cluster of ~8 heterosexual drug users will also be described, including the public health measures being undertaken to understand and intervene in this clustering.
