Welcome to our 6th annual North Eastern Structure Symposium site. This year our theme is the Structural Biology of Host-Virus Interactions, a topic that leads us to understand and find better ways to treat viral illnesses. Like previous years, we have invited leading scientists of various areas in this field to share their latest findings. Topics include Structural Biology of HIV, Viral evasion of detection & host-mediated elimination, Innate & Intrinsic Immunity.
