2018, October 15th - October 17th · Schöntal (Germany)

17th Workshop "Cell Biology of
Viral Infections"
of the Society for Virology (GfV)

High resolution approaches in virology: from cell ultrastructure to OMICS


Keynotes 2018

Dear friends and colleagues,

it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 17th 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 fifth time at the Schöntal Monastery from October 15-17 2018. The theme of the workshop will be:

High resolution approaches in virology: from cell ultrastructure to OMICS

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 again bring four keynote speakers with careers that perfectly illustrate this concept. They will cover topics as large as ultrastructural biology and high throughput protein-protein interaction approaches. 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 new colleagues who share our excitement for viruses and cells!

See you in Schöntal!
