Oktober 20, 2023 - Oktober 22, 2023

All day

University of Bologna Residential Center

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 10th European Seminar in Virology (EuSeV) entitled “Novel Concepts in Antiviral Vaccines and Immunotherapy”. The meeting will take place as a Live Meeting at the University of Bologna Residential Center in Bertinoro, Italy, October 20-22, 2023.

Antiviral vaccines represent the most successful intervention to prevent viral diseases. The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic served as a major driver for the development and practical application of new vaccine platforms like mRNA vaccination and vector-based gene delivery. In addition, the technological synergy of human monoclonal antibody isolation, structural biology and high throughput sequencing is providing new opportunities for atomic-level immunogen design and the development of pathogen-tailored immunotherapeutics. The focus of this EuSeV will be to promote the emergence of concepts and ideas of how these novel insights could be used to improve the development of antiviral vaccines and immunotherapy. The exciting program, with eminent state-of-the art speakers, will cover a range of viruses including SARS-CoV-2, HIV, HBV, CMV, and influenza viruses. We will also address specific challenges in vaccinology including the immune response in the elderly and mucosal immunity.

Abstract (oral and poster presentations) deadline: September 10, 2023. Please submit your abstract (including title, authors, affiliation(s), text of max. 300 words) to bertinoro-abstract@gmx.de.

Confirmed keynote speakers: Sergio Abrignani (Italy), Fausto Baldanti (Italy), Eberhardt Hildt (Germany), Matteo Iannacone (Italy), Masura Kanekiyo (USA), Johannes Langedijk (The Netherlands), Michelle Linterman (UK), Lori Panther (USA), Rino Rappuoli (Italy), Matthias Tenbusch (Germany), Marit van Gils (The Netherlands)

The facility is located 60 km east of Bologna in the monumental area of the Bishop’s Fortress. The surrounding area is the Appenines with hillsides covered by the local “Albana di Bertinoro” vineyards. Local transportation from and to Bologna airport will be provided. The meeting will start on Friday afternoon and end on Sunday noon.

We look forward to seeing you in Bertinoro,
