Invitation from Carlos Brites to attend the 14th International Conference on Human Retrovirology, Brazil

On behalf of the organizing committee for the  International Conference of  Retrovirology Society-HTLV, we are pleased to invite researchers, physicians and all the professionals interested in the HTLV field to attend the meeting that will be held in Salvador, Brazil, 2-5 July, 2009. Salvador, “the city of joy” is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, with a varied range of attractions, and it is easily reached through non-stop flights departing from the main Brazilian cities, as well as from other large cities in the world. We expect to have a deep, exciting program, covering the most recent findings in basic science and clinical care of patients infected by HTLV. The meeting also will provide a unique opportunity to meet the leading researchers in that field, and discuss with them the recent advances obtained in the HTLV area. In addition, we expect to have an active participation of students from Brazil, Latin America, and other parts of the world. We will make efforts to provide some scholarships for students who cannot obtain other funding sources to attend the meeting.  


The main information on the meeting will be available in the website (, which will be regularly updated, as soon as the details of the scientific program be defined.  


We look forward to meet you in Salvador!
