"The Clinical Virology Symposium provides an intimate setting where you are able to hear about a variety of virology topics that are pertinent to you and your work. It allows ample opportunity to network with colleagues and leaders in the field and learn about new diagnostic assays that are available. It is the perfect blend of everything that you would want in a scientific symposium."
