The Nature Conference on Viral Infection and Immune Response (VIIR) is jointly hosted by Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Nature Microbiology, Chinese Society for Immunology and Committee on Virology, Chinese Society for Microbiology, which will be held on Oct 21-23, 2016 in Wuhan, China.
The viral diseases have been a threat to human health, and the relevant studies have become one of the hotspots of life science. Infection and immunity are the fundamental to understand both acute and chronic viral diseases. To understand viral immunopathogenesis is the key to counteract viral infection. The conference will bring together leading international scientists to explore emerging themes in viral infections and immune dysregulation, and provide promising venues for immune interventions. With 500 participants all around the world, this conference will focus on 6 topics: epidemiology of emerging viral disease, persistent viral infection and immune dysregulation, viral pathogenesis, immune intervention and prevention of disease, innate antiviral immunity and induction of systemic adaptive immunity.
As one of the co-organizers, WIV is confident that the conference will contribute greatly to the development of studies on viral infection and immune response, provide guidance on the immune intervention and remove barriers to international research collaboration. We look forward to the engaging discussions, exchanges of ideas, and to the major outcomes of Nature Conference on Viral Infection and Immune Response.
