Frontiers of Retrovirology Conference 2013

 

 

This year, the Frontiers of Retrovirology conference was held in the historic city of Cambridge and was a great success. A selection of the world’s leading researchers in human and animal retroviruses delivered inspiring and exceptional talks. Throughout the event, tributes were paid to Kuan-Teh Jeang, founder of the conference and of Retrovirology, including the poignant Kuan-Teh Jeang memorial lecture, which was given by Stephen Goff of Columbia University. The conference included two successful interactive poster sessions, the winner of which was Alex Compton from Institut Pasteur (Abstract P18). Clare Jolly from University College London was the winner of the short talk prize, for her talk at the viral assembly session (Abstract O4). Thank you to all who attended the conference, and we look forwards to seeing everyone at the next conference in 2015.

The abstracts from the conference were published in the journal on 19th September 2013.  More details of the conference including the program and information about the speakers can be found here.
