Viruses in May (17-19 May 2018)
This year's conference will be
held at the Carrington Hotel in Katoomba. Viruses in May is a clinical course
aimed at senior and less experienced scientists, pathologists, registrars,
infectious diseases clinicians, and clinicians from other disciplines interested
in viral diseases. The themes for this year include rapid point of care testing,
parechovirus and other emerging viral threats, vaccination for prevention of
viral illness, and viral infections of Aboriginal Australians. Insights from
practitioners who are experts in the areas they talk on, and in many cases, who
are internationally recognized in their area will be invited. It is being able
to talk “up close and personal” about the areas that is of importance, and that
is one of the many things that makes VIM special. Organisers are looking forward
to outstanding plenary talks, vigorous and informed discussion, as well as
having attendees at the meeting.
