1st International Workshop on XMRV
It is with great pleasure that we announce a new initiative in the field of XMRV research, the "1st International Workshop on XMRV: Pathogenesis, Clinical and Public Health Implications". This workshop will be held on September 7-9 this year on East-Coast USA.
The objective of this scientific conference is to assemble an international group of scientists, physicians and epidemiologists to present and discuss, in a public forum, the latest XMRV studies on a range of topics including virus-host interactions, cell type tropism, mode of transmission, animal models and the efficacy of current antiretroviral drugs.
This meeting will offer an interactive setting where the latest developments in the field can be presented in order to evaluate the state of our knowledge, address controversies, and develop an understanding between experts that will help direct future research.
This workshop will be co-sponsored by the NIH and will be organized by Virology Education.
We would highly value your attendance at this workshop and look forward to welcoming you at this very important XMRV Workshop in September 2010.

What ever happened to that study of those who apparently got CFIDS after a blood transfusion?
I'm sure that only reason the NIH is sponsoring this is so that Coffin and Silvernman will have a forum to apologize to the authors of the three negative EU studies and to Bill Reeves. Apparently the NIH is planning on an annual public flogging
Huh? I'm totally lost. Where is this coming from?
LOL!!!!not really sure why Coffin needs to apologize but Silverman, what a whack job!
thats good news.Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, will serve on the Scientific Committee and as a session chair
What's everyone so excited about?
