Conference Details

Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the Frontiers of Retrovirology 2016 Meeting, which will be held from September 12–14, 2016 in Erlangen, Germany. With this meeting, we intend to continue the success of the previous three Frontiers of Retrovirology Meetings held in 2009, 2011, and 2013. As for the previous meeting, the Frontiers of Retrovirology 2016 Meeting will be generously supported by the journal Retrovirology and its Editors. In this tradition, we cordially invite you to contribute abstracts of your research work and attend the conference.

Since a major aim of the meeting is to provide a platform for young scientists to present their results and ideas, we particularly welcome junior retrovirologists joining us and would like to encourage all senior retrovirologists to promote their mentees´ attendance.

The meeting will be hosted by the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. Founded in 1815, the 42 departments and seven institutes of Universitätsklinikum Erlangen today comprehend every field of modern medicine. The university hospital buildings including the meeting´s venue are situated in the inner city, alongside the garden of the margrave’s palace and in walking distance from the main station with trains connecting to the airports in Nuremberg, Munich, and Frankfurt. The inner city location with its traditional small restaurants and Franconian breweries and the modern lecture hall provides an excellent infrastructure for frank exchange of cutting edge research in a relaxing atmosphere.

As highlights, however, we will hopefully have you, the renowned retrovirologists from all over the world to share their most exciting results.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Erlangen!

With kind regards,
Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Klaus Überla
Conference Chair
