The annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) brings together top basic, translational, and clinical researchers from around the world to share the latest studies, important developments, and best research methods in the ongoing battle against HIV/AIDS and related infectious diseases. CROI 2020 will be held from March 8 to March 11, 2020, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
The CROI Foundation partners with the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) for organization of the conference.

Goal of workshop:
While there has been substantial progress in research on the biology of aging, translating this knowledge into clinical care of people aging with HIV remains ad hoc and lacks consensus. This workshop on translating geroscience into HIV care will convene investigators nationwide that have implemented geriatric care models for HIV and aging with the goal to build a consensus on practical implementation of geroscience methods into active HIV care. This program is intended to leverage and complement our most recent workshop on the biology of aging and HIV - a workshop co-sponsored by the HU CFAR and the Boston Pepper Center.
The process will be modeled after our recent workshop on the geroscience behind HIV and Aging which was convened on the Harvard Medical Campus in October 2018 and was published in a special double issue on HIV and Aging in AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses in November 2019. The issue has over 25 peer-reviewed manuscripts and multiple reviews of the HIV and Aging field, as well as summary of the workshop.
The workshop will be organized into sessions addressing key gaps in care for people aging with HIV. The sessions will include:
• Frailty. This session will include discussion on measures of baseline frailty, where the emphasis will be to identify approaches that can be assessed efficiently and practically in a clinical setting by health care providers (e.g., nurse, clinical coordinators).
• Intrinsic capacity. This session focuses on the complementary concept of resilience and reserve measured as "intrinsic capacity” and intended as a counter measure to frailty.
• Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA). This session will discuss how to adapt classical domains in CGA for aging individuals living with HIV.
• Sexual and gender minorities. This module will focus on potential adaptations to geroscience-informed assessments for sexual and gender minority populations and transgender people.
