Virology in the last 4 decades
Breakthroughs and benefits



July 2nd, 2014, The Netherlands


After more than 20 years Professor Ab Osterhaus will be handing the reigns of the department of Viroscience to Professor Marion Koopmans.

To honour him for his remarkable accomplishments during that time, and to mark the end of an era, we are pleased to announce a farewell symposium for him with the theme:
Virology in the last 4 decades:
Breakthroughs and Benefits

This symposium will take place on Wednesday July 2, 2014 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

We have an exciting scientific program with confirmed guest speakers such as Marian Horzinek, Christian Drosten, Malik Peiris, Ralph Baric, Adolfo Garcia-Sastre, Quentin Sattentau, Geoff Smith, Eric De Clercq, and Luigi Naldini, in addition of course to Marion Koopmans and Ab Osterhaus.

Please, save the date and inform us whether you intend to attend the Symposium, as we need to get an estimate of the attendance.

With warm regards,

On behalf of The organising committee:
Prof. M.P.G. Koopmans, Prof. R.A.M. Fouchier, Prof G.F. Rimmelzwaan
