The conference promises to continue its decades-long track record as a premiere forum for research on retroviruses in an intimate and collegial setting. We welcome abstracts on any topic related to retroviruses, including retrovirus discovery and zoonoses, phylogeny, molecular virology, virus-host interactions, endogenous retroviruses in health and disease, oncogenesis, pathogenesis, immunity and vaccines, animal models of disease and new therapeutics and technologies. As many retrovirologists have become part of the global COVID-19 response, we also welcome abstracts on SARS-CoV-2 inspired by decades of groundbreaking research on retrovirus biology. Please mark your calendars and this webpage. We look forward to seeing you soon in Vail, Colorado – it’s 'Like No Place on EarthTM'!
