Respiratory Viruses of Animals Causing Disease in Humans
Organizer(s): Stanley A. Plotkin, Albert D.M.E. Osterhaus and Martin L. Hibberd
Date: December 10 - 15, 2006
Location: Swissotel The Stamford, Singapore, Singapore
In collaboration with Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore
Summary of Meeting:
Most human viral infections are derived from viruses of animals at some time in the past. The process continues, with adaptation taking place before our eyes. There is a need to bring together medical and veterinary virologists to discuss the ecologies of these agents, how they are transmitted and how we can block transmission to humans. The key problems in this area are the identification of reservoirs, the mechanics of transmission, and how to predict and perhaps control adaptation to new hosts. This meeting will be held in Singapore, a central point in Asia, where most of the interaction between animals and humans is occurring, and thus where new knowledge needs to be applied. We will seek to bring as many Asian virologists as possible to give short papers.
