Taking place at the UK’s national synchrotron facility, this symposium will gather together world-leading experts in viral pathogen research to look at the key scientific facets of virology and the role that structural approaches can play in the development of therapeutics against viral diseases. Discussion sessions and invited talks will cover four main themes: emerging diseases; vaccinology; anti-viral therapies; and new technologies. The symposium will present an opportunity to share ideas and spark new collaborations, with the outcome of a timey scientific landscape report on new approaches to emerging Zoonotic diseases.
