Welcome to the "World Congress on Virology & Infectious Diseases", America’s premier virology conference slated during November 20-22, 2017 in the beautiful city of Miami, Florida, USA. The congress is organized around the theme “Consolidating Knowledge on Advances in Virology and Combating Emerging Infectious Diseases”. Don’t miss this opportunity to exchange information, engage in stimulating discussions and collaborate with fellow virologists from around the world. Viral infections are an important cause of death worldwide. In addition, viruses such as influenza, Ebola, MERS, SARS and Chikungunya, are responsible for emergent epidemics that threaten global health. This meeting aims to stimulate the interaction between the fields of virology and immunology in order to advance our understanding of viral epidemiology and pathogenesis, as well as the innate and adaptive immune responses elicited by the host. Current advances in immune intervention and disease prevention, including the latest developments in vaccine research, will be discussed. Through stimulating interactions at the interface of virology and immunology, this conference will explore when and how a virus induces disease, thus identifying new avenues for treatment and prevention.
Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for more information. See you soon in Miami, USA.
The crystal structure of bat influenza A polymerase bound to a serine-5 phosphorylated peptide mimic from the C-terminal domain of cellular RNA polymerase II shows how the two polymerases are directly coupled and suggests that the interaction site could be targeted for antiviral drug development.
Development of a safe and efficacious vaccine for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) has been challenging. Here the authors generate a live-attenuated RSV vaccine that shows increased thermostability and immunogenicity, and protects cotton rats from RSV challenge
Acquisition of a polybasic cleavage site (pCS) in the hemagglutinin (HA) is a prerequisite for the shift of low pathogenic (LP) avian influenza virus (AIV) to the highly pathogenic (HP) form in chickens
Avian influenza virus (AIV) can infect birds and mammals, including humans, and are thus a serious threat to public health. Vaccination is vital for controlling AIV circulation
