As researchers, we are focused on preventing the spread of AIDS. Our annual meeting is the leading forum for the exchange of the latest developments in AIDS research using nonhuman primates. This forum attracts more than 200 of the world’s foremost researchers to share their findings and ideas for preventing the spread of AIDS. Findings and outcomes from this symposium will have a global impact.

The 37th Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS (NHP)

will be in San Antonio, TX – November 12-15, 2019

Texas Biomedical Research Institute and the Southwest National Primate Research Center are proud to host the 37th Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS in 2019, which will be held at the beautiful Omni La Mansion del Rio Hotel in San Antonio, TX. The NHP Symposium has a long-standing tradition of playing a vital role in disseminating the most current and relevant findings in both basic and applied areas of AIDS research. The conference typically attracts more than 200 leading scientists in many areas of AIDS-related research, representing renowned universities, research institutes and corporations worldwide.

This symposium will be funded in part by a grant from the Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as attendee registration fees.  Contributions from private and corporate sponsors, however, will enable us to maintain the high quality of programming and networking opportunities.
