16th Workshop "Cell Biology of
Viral Infections"
of the Society for Virology (GfV)

The ins and outs of virus infection: From binding to exit


Keynotes 2017

Dear friends and colleagues,

it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 16th workshop of the study group „Cell Biology of Viral Infections“, which is co-sponsored by the Society for Virology (GfV) and the German Society of Cell Biology (DGZ). This year’s workshop will be held for the fourth time at the Schöntal Monastery from November 8-10 2017. The theme of the workshop will be:

The ins and out of virus infection: From binding to exit

Our aim is to bring experts of the cell biology field together with virologists and to encourage and assist scientific exchange in both areas. This year’s meeting will bring four scientists, whose careers perfectly illustrate this concept. The all four have investigated the virus life cycle during their entire career, specifically from cell biology and virology perspectives. They will share their unique experience and vision in both cell biology and virology.

We will continue with the tradition of our lively atmosphere with our open discussion! Please remember, that the virology-related presentations do not have to be connected with our current workshop topic! We are excited to welcome back our two presentation winners from last year’s meeting and to hear their new results.

We look forward to seeing old faces and meeting some new ones!

See you in Schöntal!
