Event Overview:

The Annual International Meeting of the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) had its start in the mid-1970s when a small gathering of collaborators began to assemble under the leadership of Dr. Robert C. Gallo, then Chief of the Laboratory of Tumor Cell Biology at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD. Long before the 1996 establishment of IHV, the meeting was expanded to include discussions around tumor cell biology, retrovirology, and HIV/AIDS, among others. The meeting achieved rapid growth and even greater interest after the 1980 discovery of the first human retrovirus, HTLV-I, by Gallo and his colleagues.

When the University of Maryland recruited Gallo, Bill Blattner (National Cancer Institute) and Bob Redfield (Walter Reed Army Hospital) to create a bench-to-bedside Institute, the meeting followed and is now associated with the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Although the annual meeting has most regularly convened in Baltimore, Maryland, IHV welcomes collaboration abroad in co-hosting the event. In 2010, the meeting was moved to Italy, its first international venue, where it enjoyed tremendous success in a beautiful location on the Tyrrhenian Sea. Last year, in 2013, the meeting convened in Moscow and was held in conjunction with the first ever Moscow International Virology Week. Attendees not only enjoyed a week of stimulating and informative presentations, they also experienced, first hand, this city of deep historical significance and home to stunning architecture, cultural tradition, and the Russian Federation Capitol.

The Institute is currently investigating possible locations in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean for its 2016 meeting.

About IHV:

The Institute of Human Virology (IHV) is the first center in the United States - perhaps the world - to combine the disciplines of basic science, epidemiology and clinical research in a concerted effort to speed the discovery of diagnostics and therapeutics for a wide variety of chronic and deadly viral and immune disorders - most notably HIV, the cause of AIDS.

Formed in 1996 as a partnership between the State of Maryland, the City of Baltimore, the University System of Maryland and the University of Maryland Medical System, IHV is an institute of the University of Maryland School of Medicine and is home to some of the most globally-recognized and world-renowned experts in the field of human virology.
