Join ASM and PASCV from May 19 to 22 in 2016 for the 32nd Clinical Virology Symposium. Stay up-to-date with the latest research on viral infections through focused plenary sessions as well as poster and case presentations. New next year: the Symposium will take place from Thursday through Sunday, and it will include increased networking opportunities for you to expand connections with fellow laboratorians, physicians, and biomedical researchers involved in patient care and public health.
The symposium will feature:
- Three plenary sessions
- Three poster presentations
- One panel discussion
- Case presentations
- Exhibitor workshops
- Banquet presentations of the PASCV Clinical Virology Award, Diagnostic Virology Award, and Young Investigator Award

The Clinical Virology Symposium Exhibit Hall is an integral part of the scientific program and is designed with many Exhibit Hall attractions.
The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to more than 39,000 members today, with more than one third located outside the United States. The members represent 26 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.
Microbiological research includes infectious diseases, recombinant DNA technology, alternative methods of energy production and waste recycling, new sources of food, new drug development, and the etiology of sexually transmitted diseases, among other areas. Microbiology is also concerned with environmental problems and industrial processes.
The Pan American Society for Clinical Virology (PASCV) was founded in 1977 as the Pan American Group for Rapid Viral Diagnosis to help raise the standards of diagnostic virology in the Americas as the European Group for Rapid Viral Diagnosis has done elsewhere. The name was changed in 1995 to reflect the expanding role of the Society in all areas of clinical virology, including diagnostics, manifestations of viral diseases and viral pathogenesis, prevention of and therapy for viral diseases, and the improved understanding of all of these. The PASCV is run by an elected council and sponsors symposia, workshops and annual awards in clinical and diagnostic virology. Membership includes virologists from all of the Americas and the Caribbean. The current PASCV president is Gregory Storch, MD, from the Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louse Children’s Hospital.
