HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference on Emerging Viruses: Origins, Biology, and Control of Transmission
October 19, 2016
National Cancer Institute at Frederick
Building 549 Conference Center
We are pleased to announce that the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference on “Emerging Viruses: Origins, Biology, and Control of Transmission” will be held at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) campus in Frederick, Maryland on October 19, 2016 from 1:00 to 5:45 p.m.
The HIV Dynamics and Replication Program is organizing this half-day conference to showcase the latest findings on emerging viral pathogens. The presentations will focus on recent advances in identifying the origins of virus emergence, understanding the molecular and immunological mechanisms by which viruses cross between species and establish new host ranges, developing vaccines and antiviral therapies against emerging viruses, and attenuating the geographic and ecological sources of vulnerability to disease transmission by emerging viruses. An in-depth discussion of this recent progress will lead to new insights into the mechanisms involved in viral evolution and pathogenesis, which will aid in the international effort to control emerging viruses and mitigate their effects on public health.
Invited speakers in the outstanding program include Sina Bavari (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases), Christopher Buck (Laboratory of Cellular Oncology, National Cancer Institute), Adolfo García-Sastre (Global Health and Emerging Pathogens Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), Andrew Haddow (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases), W. Ian Lipkin (Center for Infection and Immunity, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University), and Michael Worobey (Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona).
There is no registration fee, but participants are encouraged to register in advance, as seating is limited.
We hope you will be able to join us on October 19 at the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program Conference on
Emerging Viruses: Origins, Biology, and Control of Transmission.
