Over the recent years, drug discovery via high throughput screening (HTS) has moved beyond the boundaries of pharmaceutical companies and been successfully integrated into research programs of many academic institutes. These efforts have taken advantage of the availability of diverse libraries of small molecules, either as pure entities or natural product extracts. However, identification of candidate drugs benefits from an in-depth understanding of potential pitfalls of HTS, which can include (i), storage of compound libraries (ii), stability and cost of assay reagents (iii), robustness of the assay and (iv), access to bioinformatics to analyze the wealth of data that results ...
“1st Advanced Course in Clinical and Molecular Virology” to be held in Porto (Portugal) between 9-20th May 2016. The two week course was designed to promote the state of the art knowledge in the field of Virology.
On behalf of the Coorganizers Gabriella Campadelli-Fiume, Thomas Mertens, Giorgio Palù, and Dana Wolf, please find attached the announcement of the 4th European Seminar in Virology on Oncogenic and Oncolytic Viruses, with the deadline for abstract submission (April 15).
IMI* has put out a call for research and innovation proposals to advance its programme on Ebola and other filoviral haemorrhagic fevers (Ebola+). This call is continuously open for a period of two years with the following submission cut-off dates: 16 March 2016, 15 September 2016, 16 March 2017, 14 September 2017, and 15 March 2018.

Emerging infectious diseases are due to microorganisms residing in animal reservoirs and having epidemic or epizootic potential when
transmitted to humans or livestock. Transmission occurs either directly or through arthropod vectors. Emergence of new pathogens is
linked to ecological and environmental conditions depending on the impact of human activities on ecosystems (intensive agriculture,
urbanization, deforestation, global trade, travels, climate change). The 4th One Health course will provide an overview of different
disciplines contributing to the One Health concept and will point to strategies to detect, identify and control pathogens during outbreaks.
The 12th HKU-Pasteur Virology course will focus on“Outbreaks” with particular emphasis on hemorrhagic fevers.
As the most devastating outbreak of Ebola virus disease is still ongoing, the course will discuss cutting edge research on the epidemiology, anthropology, molecular biology, ecology and prevention strategies to contain the devastating impact of this group of diseases. The recent outbreak of Chikungunya virus throughout the Caribbean will be reviewed to illustrate the impact of its rapidly evolving epidemiology, with increased frequency of outbreaks and expansion to new geographical areas that were previously unaffected.
Los días 15 y 16 de diciembre, bajo la coordinación de nuestra compañera Mª Ángeles Muñoz Fernández, tendrá lugar en el Hotel Convención de Madrid estas Jornadas que ya se han constituido como un clásico de todos los años. Te animamos a que asistas.
