6–7 September 2018 2018 Chromatin Control of Viral Infection
Natcher Conference Center, National Institute of Health, Bethesda, Maryland
Like their cellular hosts, invading viral pathogens that depend upon the host cell nuclear machinery are also subject to the regulatory impacts of chromatin.
For lytic pathogens, successful infection depends upon the ability to counter cellular defense mechanisms that can result in suppressive heterochromatin assembled on the viral genome along with utilization of cellular chromatin modulation activities that promote efficient viral gene transcription and DNA replication. Additionally, viral pathogens whose complex replication cycles include coupled stages of lytic replication and latency/persistence are impacted by epigenetic modulation that plays a controlling role in determining the viral state.
Research into the basic biology of chromatin deposition, modification, and modulation/remodeling will contribute to the understanding of the complex host-viral interactions that influence the progression of viral diseases. Additionally, insights into the role of epigenetic machinery in controlling viral infection can present novel opportunities for prophylaxis or treatment. The workshop "2018 Chromatin Control of Viral Infection" will focus on epigenetic mechanisms that regulate viral chromatin states, viral encoded factors that modulate viral and/or cellular chromatin, and epigenetic control of host cell antiviral responses.
We invite you to participate in this intimate symposium-workshop.

7 November 2018 International HBV Cure Workshop 2018
We are proud to announce the 5th edition of the International HBV Cure Workshop 2018, which will take place on 7 November 2018 in Toronto, Canada.
More than 250 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B (HBV) around the globe. The purpose of the program is to inform the participants about the developments in the possibilities to find a cure for HBV. The meeting will be highly interactive with input from experts out of the arena of basic, translational and clinical HBV research. The field of HBV treatment is undergoing major changes and is on the verge of a paradigm shift. The many new treatment options that are becoming available are providing great hopes for decreasing the burden of the disease, simplifying treatment and ultimately curing and eradicating HBV infection. In order to optimize curative treatment for HBV, outstanding speakers from around the globe will share the newest therapeutic options for viral hepatitis and experts will discuss the path forward to cure this deadly disease, leading to liver cirrhosis and liver cancer. Questions on which end points to use in therapeutic trials and how to combine different agents targeting the virus and/or immune system will be extensively discussed. This workshop also brings together global interdisciplinary experts to provide a framework for how academia and industry should could collaborate to achieve the goal of curing hepatitis B.
