New Hope for Diagnosing and Treating Post-Infection Illnesses: Lessons Learned from HIV/AIDS

July 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Deeks and Hardy Webinar Graphic

In this special webinar, Dr. Steven Deeks (Professor of Medicine-in-Residence at the University of California, San Francisco) will be hosted by Solve M.E. Medical Advisor Dr. David Hardy (former Director of Division of Infectious Diseases at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, and Professor of Medicine at David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles). The two long-time researchers and clinicians (practicing doctors) and veterans of the battle against HIV/AIDS, will discuss how current studies on Long Covid, informed by knowledge gained in other fields, could help develop improved ways to diagnose and treat the broader challenge of post-infection illnesses, such as ME/CFS.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic Dr. Deeks has re-focused his clinical care and research activity on this urgent need. He is now a member of the Board of Directors for the UCSF-based amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research and a principal investigator for the NIH’s RECOVER study. In their conversation, Drs. Deeks and Hardy will discuss the emerging scientific and medical findings, reflect on their HIV/AIDS experience and the importance of patient engagement in research and advocacy, and discuss the prospects for treatments and therapies.
