The 4th European Congress of Virology was held on April 7th through 11th at Villa Erba in Cernobbio (Italy).
The Conference has been the first combined event organized by the newly established European Virology Society. More than 1’300 participants gathered in Cernobbio and several aspects of Virology have been discussed spanning from H1N1-2009 epidemiology to viral oncogenesis. A summary of the conference has been published on the July issue of Expert Review of Vaccines to elucidate social and scientific highlights of the Conference.
Organizers have paid a special tribute to several scientists from USA as well as from Europe to improve links between research groups from the two Atlantic sites. Further pictures have been published on Picasa and are available at
