Innovative approaches in the development of antiviral drugs is crucial for improvements of current therapies and possible new indications. Continually emerging global viral threats along with antiviral resistance and viral immune evasion pose a significant challenge to current antivirals. Increased awareness and understanding in these areas aid our progress towards better treatment regimens.
Leaders in industry and academia will discuss current landscape and emerging new therapies in the field of HIV, RSV, Hepatitis B/C, Influenza etc. New drug designs and their mechanism of actions, approaches to address immune evasion mechanisms and viral resistance, and challenges in clinical study designs will also be discussed. We invite you to attend and engage with other prominent thinkers in the field on July 13-14, 2017 in Baltimore, MD.
- Plenary Session: Responding to Emerging Infectious Diseases on the Global Stage
