Junge GfV

Welcome

We are an association of committed young and junior scientists as well as group leaders within Society of Virology (GfV). We offer interested young scientists from bachelor's degree to doctorate to senior scientist (PostDoc / staff scientist / junior group leader) or doctor in further education a network to support you both scientifically and in career planning.

Zur Vertiefung Eurer Kenntnisse in der Virologie bieten wir Euch verschiedene Arbeitskreise mit jährlichen Workshops. In diesen Workshops könnt ihr Eure eigenen Arbeiten einem größeren Publikum präsentieren, Ergebnisse diskutieren und mit eingeladenen Gastrednern und teilnehmenden Virologen Kontakte knüpfen. Die Achieve Academy und die Young PI faculty bieten zusätzlich Workshops und Unterstützung bei Fragen zur Karriereplanung und Qualifizierungsmaßnahmen.

About us

Die junge GfV ist eine übergeordnete Organisation der GfV Arbeitskreise.

Das Board besteht aus den hauptverantwortlichen Leitenden eines jeden Arbeitskreises sowie aus zwei Vertretern der jungen Virologen. Das junge GfV Board nimmt Aufgaben im Sinne der jungen GfV wahr und vertritt diese über die SprecherIn im GfV Vorstand.

Working groups

ACHIEVE I Education and training

The young academy ACHIEVE within the German Society of Virology has two important goals: On the one hand, ACHIEVE wants to arouse enthusiasm for the subject of virology among students of the life sciences, human medicine and veterinary medicine. On the other hand, the academy wants to help young virologists to advance professionally in their field.

Workshops adapted to the two target groups are to realise these goals. Tailor-made for the respective target group, the participants are offered qualification measures as well as networking opportunities. The workshops are also a platform for the exchange of experience between the generations in virology. The events, including application deadlines and modalities, will be announced in good time via the homepage and the GfV newsletter.

Clinical virological research

The working group was founded in 2007 as part of the regular laboratory directors' meetings in Würzburg and is a forum for all physicians and scientists interested in clinical virology. Once a year we offer a workshop near Würzburg (following the laboratory directors' meeting). The main topics are clinical-virological or diagnostic studies, case reports and current issues concerning the future direction of clinical virology, e.g. recruitment of young scientists. In addition to the training character, the workshops are intended to provide a platform for younger scientists to present their clinical-virological projects and to use the opportunity for diverse discussions in a smaller setting.

One Health and zoonotic viruses 

The newly founded working group "One Health and zoonotic viruses" aims to promote the exchange of knowledge on the latest state of research in the field of One Health. New methods and research results are to be presented at annual workshops on the topic and young scientists and experienced researchers are to be networked.

Virus vectors and gene therapy

Viruses are already the basis for a new class of drugs for gene therapy, oncolysis and genetic vaccination. The working group virus vectors and gene therapy aims to enable young scientists from virology and from gene therapy to exchange scientific knowledge. We also form a linking element to the German Society for Gene Therapy(www.dg-gt.de).

Cell biology of viral infections

The topics of the working group "Cell Biology of Viral Infections" include interactions of viruses with their host cells, i.e. in particular the biology of pro- and antiviral host cell factors, interactions of viruses with host cell organelles and their reorganisation in the course of a virus infection, as well as methodological advances in the border area of cell biology and virology.

Young PI faculty

The Young PIs working group was founded in 2022 for research group leaders in basic and clinical research who do not yet hold a W2 professorship. The aim of the working group is to impart knowledge that facilitates the transition from bench to successful leadership of one's own working group.

The Young PI working group organizes meetings and workshops to provide important tips, tricks and soft skills. Furthermore, it actively promotes networking between scientists at the beginning of their independence.
