- Symposium Objective
symposium will provide a forum for the meaningful exchange of ideas
dealing with viral infections, led by biomedical scientists engaged
in research and primary care physicians involved with patient care.
The relationship between rapid viral diagnosis, clinical course of viral
infections and preventive and therapeutic modalities for virus infections
is the theme of this three-and-one-half day meeting. Discussion of timely
topics by renowned scientists assures that this symposium will be informative
and interesting. Furthermore, newly acquired information about clinically-
relevant viral infections will be useful to practicing physicians who
can apply this knowledge in a clinical setting. The symposium is intended
for physicians with an interest in virology, virology technicians, technologists,
laboratory supervisors, laboratory directors and other health care professionals
with an interest in the latest developments in clinical and diagnostic
- Specific Continuing Education
1. Participants will gain
a greater ability to explain the pathogenesis of viral diseases and
the biology of the viruses that cause them.

diagnostic virology tests
3. Participants will be better able to explain methods of antiviral
therapies and vaccination strategies.
