May 24, 2022: LIV Joint Scientific Retreat at the CSSB

Tuesday, 24. May 2022

On May 12, 2022, the two program areas of the Leibniz Institute of Virology "Molecular Mechanisms of Viral Pathogenesis" and "Innovative Antiviral Therapies" met at the Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB) in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld for a joint scientific retreat.

The overall topics addressed were "Structure and Dynamics of Viral Morphogenesis", "Replication and Antivirals", "Latency and Transformation" and "Immune Biology of Viral Infection". In addition to the lectures in which current scientific work was presented, there were opportunities to exchange ideas with colleagues during the poster session as well as during coffee breaks and at the joint barbecue.

As in previous years, prizes were awarded for the two best presentations (Sigurður Rafn Þorkelsson and Mareike Ohms), the two best posters (Sarah Vollmers and Tian Bai) and the best questions (Sebastian Beck). The winners of the prizes were announced on May 24, 2022 during the LIV Institute Seminar.

The LIV once again congratulates all the award winners on their achievement!
