Netherlands National Virologists Day on 3 March 2017

On Friday, 3 March, the Dutch Annual Virology Symposium (DAVS) will be held to mark the Netherlands’ National Virologists Day. This scientific conference, organised by Emmanuel Wiertz (UMCU) and Raoul de Groot (Department of Infectious Diseases & Immunology - Virology) under the auspices of the Netherlands Society for Microbiology (KNVM), draws around 200 participants each year from every field in the study of virology.

The conference will be held in the Central Public Library (OBA Theatre), at Oosterdokskade 143, 1011 DL Amsterdam, and will begin at 09:00. This year, the Royal Netherlands Association of the Sciences and Arts will present two prestigious awards at the conference: the Beijerinck Virology Prize and the Beijerinck Bonus.

Registration is required, and seats will be reserved in the order in which the registrations are received. To sign up for the event, or for more information, please send an e-mail to: virology@vet.uu.nl or call: (030) 253 24 85.
