Respiratory viruses are particularly easy to contract compared to other viruses, and cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite many decades of study, our ability to prevent and treat these infections is limited, as demonstrated by the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
This Keystone Symposia conference on "Respiratory Viruses: New Frontiers" in Keystone, Colorado, will bring together researchers studying different respiratory viruses from both host and pathogen perspectives, to reveal novel cross-disciplinary insights into respiratory virus biology that will drive innovative strategies for prevention and treatment. The program will cover diverse approaches, tools and technologies that are advancing the field, as well as emerging research on host-virus interactions, long-term ramifications of respiratory infections and recent clinical successes and failures.
As a joint meeting with the Keystone Symposia on “Viral Immunity,” all attendees will gain access to both meetings and joint sessions to promote collaborative synergy between virologists and immunologists towards clinical advances.
