Another Retrovirus conference: with more of the hot XMRV researchers attending this conference in the EU. Might one of our Czech Republic or EU members attend? Prague 2010 Centennial Retrovirus Conference: Ap 29-May 04, 2010 Institute of Molecular Genetics, Prague, Czech Republic From: http://www.crm2010.org/programme/provisional-programme.html Presenters include: Paul Jolicoeur (Clinic. Res. Inst., Montreal, Canada) Dr Jolicoeur is doing a Canadian study on ME/CFS and XMRV. Might he be reporting on the results??: Presentation: Action @ the cell surface John Coffin (Tufts, MA): Presentation: Retrovirus Evolution Jonathan Stoye (NIMR, London, UK): Cellular Defenses Francis W. Ruscetti (NIH, MD): Roles of Innate and Adapted Defenses in Infections by Retroviruses Stephen P.

My Note: Interestingly, the conference program is almost meticulous in NOT mentioning XMRV. So no guarantee how much focus there might be on XMRV... Then again, some of the key XMRV researchers are tantalizingly there. And this is not a severely expensive conference, especially for students. Is this something the forum members might sponsor, for one of our EU members to attend and report back? Might the WPI or CAA or IACFSME or ESME send a delegate?
