Welcome to the Symposium
The first Oxford Respiratory Viruses symposium will be co-hosted with the annual influenza conference, Influenza 2014. Respiratory Viruses 2014 will focus on applied research and development on all aspects of serological techniques, and sero-surveillance and control strategies that are currently being used/developed for respiratory viruses.
Oral and poster presentation opportunties are available in the following applied areas of respiratory virus research:-
o New serological/immunological assays for respiratory viruses
o Use of surrogate viruses for respiratory virus serology (VLP/Pseudotype viruses)
o Correlates of protection
o Standardization of serological assays
o T cell and B cell assays
o Comparative serology
o Sero-surveillance and control
o Immunogenicity testing of next-generation vaccines
o Therapeutic antibodies
If you are interested in presenting at this symposium, please get in touch with us on ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘.
We aim to provides a relaxed, open and intellectually-stimulating discussion forum for respiratory virus researchers, attracting world leaders and early-career scientists from academia, industry, public/animal health organizations and regulatory bodies.
We look forward to your participation in Respiratory Viruses 2014.
