Eighth Annual Bay Area Symposium on Viruses - June 2018
The Bay Area Symposium on Viruses is an annual one-day conference that aims to strengthen interactions among Bay Area scientists and clinicians who share a strong interest in virology. The symposium features presentations by leading Bay Area scientists, roundtable discussions, a poster session, and opportunities for networking.
Last year, researchers, scientists, and clinicians from all over the Bay Area gathered to discuss a broad range of virus-related topics, from Identification of a Promising New Class of HIV-Latency Reversing Agents to The KSHV protein ORF68 is a proteasome-manipulating nuclease required for DNA packaging.
