WELCOME TO THE 24TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY FOR VIROLOGY
Tyrol has an excellent reputation regarding medical research. Therefore, I am very pleased that outstanding virologists from all over the world will get together at the 24th Annual Meeting of the Society for Virology in Alpbach. I am convinced that Tyrol and Alpbach offer the best requirements for a successful conference.
“Knowledge enables healing”: Medical conferences are of importance and value, because they offer experts an opportunity to exchange their experiences and know-how. This is especially fundamental in virology as viruses are responsible for many illnesses and infectious diseases – main reasons why patients seek medical help.
I hope that all participants will gain useful new insights, which will contribute to the treatment of their patients and that therefore the conference satisfies all interests.
Governor of Tyrol
