Conference Details

Welcome Note

Dear colleagues

it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Frontiers of Retrovirology Conference 2016 in Erlangen. During the conference you will hear lots of great new research on complex retroviruses, retroelements, and their hosts.

One of the hot topics of this year´s meeting is “Innate sensing and intrinsic immunity“. We have therefore devoted two sessions to this topic. While the interplay between virus replication and innate immunity are increasingly unraveled, the consequences of innate sensing on adaptive immunity remain more poorly investigated. We have therefore expanded the themes of previous Frontiers of Retrovirology conferences by including sessions on “Adaptive immunity“ and “Recent advances in HIV vaccine development“.

After days full of science, we would also like to invite you to join us for a relaxing and entertaining conference dinner in Schloss Atzelsberg, a small castle built 300 years ago on the hills of Erlangen.

We wish you an exciting meeting full of novel insights and interesting ideas to take home.

Best regards

Prof. Dr. Klaus Überla
Conference Chair
