The 33rd Clinical Virology Symposium, presented by ASM, will be held May 7-10, 2017, in its new location at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center in Savannah, Georgia!
Led by biomedical scientists engaged in research as well as primary care physicians and laboratorians involved with patient care, this international symposium will provide an unmatched forum for the meaningful exchange of ideas dealing with viral infections. The relationship between rapid viral diagnosis, clinical course of viral infections and preventive and therapeutic modalities for viral infections is the theme of this premier meeting. Discussion of timely topics by renowned scientists assures that this symposium will be informative and engaging, while newly acquired information about clinically-relevant viral infections will be useful to practicing physicians who can apply this knowledge in a clinical setting.
Additionally, the Pan American Society for Clinical Virology (PASCV) will host the Molecular Virology Workshop, May 6, 2017. For additional information, visit www.pascv.org.
The symposium is intended for physicians, laboratory directors, laboratory professionals, technicians, laboratory supervisors, technologists and other health care professionals with an interest in the latest developments in clinical and diagnostic virology.
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
Your target audience awaits you at the 33rd Clinical Virology Symposium! Exhibit at this leading event to meet fellow physicians, laboratory directors, laboratory professionals, technicians, laboratory supervisors, technologists and other health care professionals with an interest in the latest developments in clinical and diagnostic virology. Don't miss the unique opportunity to reach key decision makers, generate quality leads, showcase your products and services, and more!
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.
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.
