The ICMAOI is the only forum that is solely focused on presentation of basic, epidemiologic, and clinical aspects of research on malignancies in HIV-infected and other immunosuppressed individuals. Our objective is to enable information exchange between laboratory and clinically based investigators to decrease the interval between basic discovery and clinical application. This conference will address basic and clinical research on viral oncology, immunology, genetics, epidemiology, pathogenesis, drug discovery, early diagnosis, and clinical investigation of malignant diseases in AIDS and other immunodeficiency states including organ transplantation. We anticipate an emphasis on human papillomavirus (HPV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus/human herpesvirus 8 (KSHV/HHV-8) and their related malignancies including lymphomas, ano-genital carcinomas, Kaposi's sarcoma, and Hodgkin's disease. Translational objectives such as basic target identification and validation, and preventive or therapeutic interventions are of particular interest. Other topics include interactions between viruses, somatic cell genetic changes, inherited and environmental risk factors, molecular genetics and biomarkers of disease, experimental models, novel clinical and therapeutic observations, epidemiology of etiologic agents or disease and clinical outcomes.
