Message from the ISNV Meetings Committee

The meetings committee has been working together on an exciting agenda that will feature a number of world-renowned experts in timely areas such as COVID-19 and Emerging Pathogens.

The virtual symposium will occur over 4 afternoons and highlight exciting research on COVID in the Brain, Nipah, Rabies, EV71, HIV Cure/Eradication, and HIV/Aging. NIMH will also host an informative session titled ‘Epigenetic Mechanisms Regulating HIV/CNS Latency’.

As in previous years, the sessions will be comprised of invited plenary speakers and short talks from selected abstracts where cutting-edge research has been identified by the Abstract Review Committee.

In our effort to showcase additional research from our members, the committee will also select several posters for the authors to deliver five- minute talks in a session titled ‘Rapid Fire’ presentations.

The posters will remain online for the duration of the symposium so attendees may peruse at their leisure.

As always, in recognition and support of our rising young scientists, we will highlight our junior investigators in a separate session consisting of those who exhibit excellence in scientific research in various topics relative to the program.

The mentorship session will consist of colleagues in various fields such as publication, pharma and other industries who have made a successful transition from academia. Our junior investigators will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn firsthand about careers outside of academics.

We realize our virtual symposium is not the same as an in-person gathering, but the emphasis remains on an educational experience which can only be had at an ISNV conference. We encourage you all to be ambassadors of ISNV by enhancing the visibility of this exciting educational and research exchange opportunity to your students, trainees, and colleagues. The overall strength of the Society rests with an active membership across the United States and with our international colleagues located in countries around the world.
