Advances in Influenza Research: From Birds to Bench to Bedside
joint with Viral Immunity: From Basic Mechanisms to Vaccines
Organizer(s): Kanta Subbarao and David L. Woodland
Date: March 28 - April 02, 2006
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Part of the Global Health Series, Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
Outbreaks of avian influenza virus infections in humans are a sobering reminder that human influenza is a perpetually re-emerging disease and that newly emerged viruses threaten to be the agents of the next influenza pandemic. Although licensed vaccines are available for the prevention of epidemic human influenza, improved vaccines for the elderly and effective strategies to protect humans against potential pandemic strains of influenza are urgently needed. In recent years, the application of reverse genetics has led to novel insights into virus biology and molecular pathogenesis. In this meeting, experts in the field will discuss exciting advances in our understanding of the interactions of the virus with its host and basic mechanisms underlying immunity. This multi-disciplinary meeting will provide a forum for interchange between virologists, immunologists and vaccine researchers from academia, government and industry on aspects of basic and applied influenza research. The objectives of the meeting are to facilitate the application of new advances in influenza research from the bench to the bedside to improve understanding of the disease and to develop better measures to prevent and control influenza.
