Chromatin Control of Viral Infection Symposium
2014-09-18 to 2014-09-19
Maryland 20892
Text: Advances in understanding the basic biology of chromatin deposition, modification, and modulation/remodeling will contribute to the understanding of viral diseases and present novel opportunities for prophylaxis or treatment. The workshop "2014 Chromatin Control of Viral Infection" brings together leaders in this research area representing various viral families.

HIV Drug Resistance Program Conference on “Virus Structure: Putting the Pieces Together”
2014-10-21
Conference Center, Frederick, MD, USA
The HIV Drug Resistance Program is hosting this half-day conference to showcase the latest findings on the structural biology of viruses, with a particular emphasis on imaging macromolecular structures and deciphering how viral and host proteins interact to mediate pathogenesis. Exploring new technologies that enhance the sensitivity of imaging systems will provide valuable information about the structure and dynamics of macromolecular assemblies to aid the design of more effective antiviral therapies.

5th International Conference on Retroviral Integration
2014-10-23 to 2014-10-26
Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, CA, USA
The International Conference on Retroviral Integration aims to bring together researchers, basic scientists and clinicians to share information and latest advances on the integration of retroviral DNA into the chromosome of a susceptible host cell. It blends the fields of chemistry, biology and clinical research to translate basic research into the clinic.

The Third ASM Conference on Viral Manipulation of Nuclear Processes
2014-10-30 to 2014-11-02
Washington, DC, USA
This meeting will bring together researchers who study how viruses manipulate cellular processes for their own replication focusing on how viruses perturb nuclear functions. The scope will be broad and will embrace diverse virus families, including DNA viruses that replicate in the nucleus, such as Polyoma-,Papilloma-, Adeno- and Herpesviruses, extending to  HIV,  retroviruses and nuclear RNA viruses, like Influenza. Also included will be RNA viruses that replicate in the cytoplasm but exploit or hijack nuclear functions. Topics will include subversion of host transcriptional machinery; effects on host DNA repair pathways; epigenetic alterations; viral remodeling of the nucleus; viral induction of the stress response, immune evasion and innate antiviral defense, miRNA regulation; viral effects on the nuclear membrane, and viruses and cancer. The goal of the conference is to integrate discussions on how different viruses have developed strategies to target host nuclear functions.

Viruses and Human Cancer (D2)
2015-03-29 to 2015-04-03
Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, Montana, USA
The objective of the symposium is to explore how advances in cancer biology can inform the understanding of virus-induced cancers, and how viruses continue to reveal fundamental principles in cancer.
