CROI 2021 – Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections

March 6, 2021 - March 10, 2021

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The 2021 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) will be held March 6-10, 2021 in a virtual format.

The synergy of basic science and clinical investigation has been a major contributor to the success of the meeting. CROI has facilitated the presentation of important discoveries in the field, thereby accelerating progress in HIV and AIDS research. As always, the best and most consequential original research will define the science at virtual CROI 2021 (vCROI 2021), which will include research in HIV, hepatitis viruses, SARS-CoV-2, and other viral infections and their related conditions.
