NINTH WORKSHIP ON NONACUTE RETROVIRAL PATHOGENESIS

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the application) Partial support for a workshop
on pathogenesis by non-acute retroviruses is requested. Viruses that cause
cancer, immunodeficiencies and neuropathology will be considered, this
includes murine leukemia viruses, avian leukosis virus, feline leukemia
virus, murine mammary tumor virus, HTLV-1, bovine leukemia virus, MAIDS
virus, endogenous human retroviruses, non-human lentiviruses and
spumaviruses. The human viruses are of interest for their pathogenic or
genetic properties. The other viruses provide important model systems for
disease processes that are relevant to analogous human diseases. This is
the ninth workshop in a series of workshops which began in 1986. These
workshops are generally believed to contribute to the dissemination and
cross-fertilization of ideas among scientists in this field. It is
projected that 120 people will attend the workshop.
