Friends and Colleagues:
Conference on Antiviral Research will be held at Raleigh
Convention Center in Raleigh,North Carolina, USA. The
conference will begin on Monday,May 12, 2014 with an
Interactive Workshop titled Drug Discovery and Development 101, the opening
ICAR keynote address by David Margolis and Myron Cohen. Furthermore, this year
ISAR is also very happy to host at this meeting the final network conference of
the EUVIRNA consortium, a European Training Network on (+)RNA Virus Replication
and Antiviral Drug Development. The closing banquet will be on Thursday,
May 15, 2014 and the conference’s exciting program will conclude
on Friday, May 16, 2014.
provides an interdisciplinary forum of interest to chemists, biologists, and
clinicians involved in antiviral research.
At ICAR, scientists worldwide working in the areas of basic, applied,
and clinical research meet in a collaborative and collegial atmosphere to
review recent developments in all areas of antiviral drug discovery and
development. Specific topics to be
covered in the scientific program include: medicinal chemistry, virus
replication, host cell-virus interactions, virus latency, new target
identification, biochemistry and mechanism of action, mechanisms of viral drug
resistance, assay development, in vitro evaluation, animal models,
pharmacokinetics, toxicology, and clinical trials. Within these areas of
interest, there will be keynote, plenary, single topic mini-symposia, a
clinical symposium, and oral and poster presentations. As we have done at previous ICARS, the
prestigious ‘Elion’ and
‘Prusoff’ Awards from ISAR will be given to individuals in recognition of
their major contributions in the field.
This year the Holy Award will be presented to a
senior basic scientist of international stature who has made major
contributions to the field of medicinal chemistry and who has made significant
contributions that directly or tangentially advanced antiviral drug discovery. In addition to the poster awards, to graduate students
and junior researchers, ICAR has expanded its travel grant support
program to encourage more students and junior researchers to attend.
The first thing many visitors say about
Raleigh is, "It’s so green here.” Well, that phrase takes on a whole new
meaning with the area’s renewed commitment to sustainability. From the Raleigh
Convention Center, one of only two Silver LEED Certified centers in the
country, to the world-class universities and companies here seeking
environmentally-friendly breakthroughs. Raleigh has it all and makes it an
ideal location for the 27th ICAR.
We look forward to seeing you in Raleigh!
