Cell Biology of Virus Entry, Replication and Pathogenesis
Organizer(s): Robert W. Doms, Beth Levine, Herbert (Skip) W. Virgin IV, and Robert A. Lamb
Date: April 13 - 18, 2008
Location: Fairmont Empress Victoria / Victoria Conference Centre, Victoria, BC, Canada
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Advances in structural biology have provided great insight into virus entry and assembly. The increasing use of whole genome screens, such as RNAi screens, has greatly accelerated the discovery of host factors needed for virus replication. Mechanisms underlying innate immunity and how viruses evade immune responses continue to be identified and provide fascinating insights into viral pathogenesis. Putting everything together to understand viral pathogenesis remains a central goal in this field. This meeting brings together experts on all facets of viral life cycles to develop insights into how viruses cause disease, and how this may be prevented.
