Welcome note

Prof. Dr. Lars Dölken

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the

28th Annual Meeting of the Society for Virology
from March 14th to 17th 2018
at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany.

As usual, the annual meeting of the German Society of Virology will cover a broad spectrum of topics in virology including workshops and poster sessions. A major aim of the meeting is to provide a platform for young scientist to present their work and ideas. Therefore, we would like to particularly welcome young researchers to join us and encourage all senior virologists to promote their mentees´ attendance.

The Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg was originally founded in 1402 with the four traditional faculties of theology, law, medicine and philosophy. Currently, the University of Würzburg has about 29,000 students who strongly shape the appearance of the city of Würzburg, with its almost 130,000 inhabitants.

The Institute of Virology and Immunology, founded almost 50 years ago, has a long-standing history of interdisciplinary research in virology, cell biology and immunology. Following the establishment of the Research Center for Infectious Diseases in 1993, research in this field has been boosted by two recent exciting developments. In spring 2017, a new Helmholtz-Institute for RNA-based infection research (HIRI) was founded in Würzburg, located at the heart of the new biomedical campus. It will continue to recruit leading scientists and cutting-edge technologies for infection research to Würzburg.

We are convinced that we will have a very successful and stimulating 28th Annual Meeting of the Society for Virology in the beautiful city of Würzburg.

The organising committee is looking forward to welcoming you all in Würzburg!

Best regards

Prof. Dr. Lars Dölken on behalf of the organising committee
