Successful first edition symposium 'Innate Immunity in Viral Infection'

On December 13 and 14, a Symposium on “Innate Immunity in Viral Infection” took place in the historic Academy Building in Leiden. The Symposium was co-organised by Annemarthe van der Veen (IMMU) and Marjolein Kikkert (MM) and featured 12 international and 6 national speakers.

The focus of the meeting was on intracellular pathways that mediate virus sensing and antiviral effector mechanisms. Amongst the highlights were keynote lectures from John Hiscott (Institute Pasteur) and Volker Thiel (University of Bern) as well as many other excellent talks (for the full program, click here). There was a lively poster session and a jury selected two poster prize winners who were both awarded a travel grant. The event was sponsored by the NWO, LIFI, LUMC, and an EU Horizon 2020 twinning project (Epiviral). After this highly successful and well-received first edition we will certainly repeat this event!
