Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Modeling Viral Infections and Immunity

Posted on Apr 21, 2017 12:02:00 AM

Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Modeling Viral Infections and Immunity


Viral infection modeling provides insights into the pathogenesis and treatment of HIV, HCV, HSV-2, CMV and other viruses. It has had impact in revealing the lifespan of infected cells, how rapidly a virus is produced and cleared from the circulation, and the means for evaluating the effectiveness of antiviral treatments. Viral infections generally occur in tissues so the meeting will discuss imaging techniques and methods of modeling and analyzing spatial infection data, the role of tissue-resident memory cells, and important features of immune regulation, such as immune exhaustion, cytokine signaling between cells, and viral subversion of innate responses and escape from adaptive responses. The meeting will highlight significant hurdles to curing viral infections and will bring together experimental virologists, physician scientists and modelers of various types and experience.
