Emerging Viruses 2018

It is with much regret that, due to unforeseen circumstances, this symposium has been cancelled. We will announce dates for the next year soon. Our sincere apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Welcome to the Oxford Emerging Viruses Symposium

The symposium will focus on applied research on surveillance and control strategies for emerging viruses.

We welcome proposals for oral and poster presentations in the following general areas of applied areas of virology and serology. We particularly encourage final year doctoral students and early/mid career postdoctoral researchers/junior group leaders to submit oral abstracts, as we believe this event will provide their research an excellent exposure, critical analysis by attending senior researchers and new career opportunities:-

o New serological/immunological assays
o Use of surrogate viruses, e.g. VLP/Pseudotype viruses, for serology
o Correlates of protection
o Standardization of serological assays
o T cell and B cell assays
o Comparative serology
o Epidemiology and control
o Immunogenicity testing of novel vaccines and therapeutic antibodies

If you are interested in presenting at this symposium, please get in touch with us on ‘VirusesOxford@gmail.com‘.

We look forward to your participation in Emerging Viruses 2018.
