Cell Biology of Virus Entry, Replication and Pathogenesis
Organizer(s): Herbert W. Virgin, Robert A. Lamb, Richard W. Compans, Robert W. Doms and Michael B.A. Oldstone
Date: February 24 - March 01, 2006
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The elucidation of the molecular interactions between viral components and cells, and how this determines the outcome of infection is the most exciting area of modern virology. New advances in structural biology, genetics, and molecular virology have speeded the pace of discovery in this area and led to significant insights into virology, immunology and cell biology. The new NIH emphasis on mechanisms of viral infection provides new support and excitement for this already fertile area. The pivotal areas to be covered are (i) the cell biology of virus entry, uncoating, protein traffic, assembly, budding and release, (ii) the defensive mechanisms that cells and organisms use to combat viruses, (iii) strategies of viral immune evasion. These areas impact significantly on fundamental issues in cell biology, cell and species tropism, and pathogenesis of viral diseases. The meeting will once again provide a cross disciplinary forum for discussing novel insights into cell biology of virus infection and the relationship of these findings to pathogenesis and defense. Each session covers a topic rather than a virus family in order to foster discussion across virus family-boundaries. Our topic oriented program has been very successful in the many successful meetings organized since 1988.
