Speakers will present the latest scientific developments across the range of antiviral research, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of the field. ICAR provides opportunities for virologists, chemists, clinicians, pharmacologists, biologists and regulatory agency representatives to develop the collaborative relationships needed for the discovery and development of new antiviral therapies. The conference also offers special events to welcome new scientists and help them establish successful careers. ISAR members will strengthen their network of research associates and add new contacts.The 2019 program will include:
Career Panel and Networking Event
Please join us for a panel discussion about career opportunities in antiviral research at the 32nd ICAR meeting. This year we will host an excellent group of panelists who are recognized experts in various areas of antiviral research and have pursued successful career in academia, government, or industry. As part of a moderated panel discussion, they will be ready to share their experience, answer questions, and provide feedback about career development. They will highlight the similarities and differences between different sectors of antiviral research. At the end of the formal panel discussion, you will have opportunity to informally network with your colleagues and make new contacts.
This event is open to all ICAR attendees.

Poster Award Competition
ISAR will present awards for excellence in scientific poster presentations at the annual Conference. The awards will be presented to recognize young investigators for their outstanding contributions to antiviral research. Awards will be based on criteria including scientific excellence, innovative research methodology, clarity and organization of presentation materials, and competence of the investigator in responding to the poster audience. Award recipients will be chosen by the Poster Award Subcommittee, a panel of ISAR members; with first and second place prizes presented to the winners. Click here for submission details.
This session will give graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other young investigators the opportunity to present their posters as short talks. Those wishing to be considered for this session should prepare 3-4 slides summarizing their poster, and the presenters will be chosen after review of the posters. Two presenters will be selected as co-chairs.
Women in Science Roundtable
This session will address the challenges and opportunities encountered by female scientists while navigating the twists and turns of career progression.
This event is open to all ICAR attendees but space is limited. More details will be available soon!
The International Society for Antiviral Research (ISAR) is an internationally recognized organization for scientists involved in basic, applied, and clinical aspects of antiviral research. The Society main event is the annual International Conference on Antiviral Research (ICAR), a truly interdisciplinary meeting which attracts the interest of chemists, biologists, and clinicians.
