The 5th Workshop on Virus Dynamics will take place virtually on October 4-6, 2021. This series brings together virologists and immunologists with mathematical modelers and systems biologists to discuss current approaches and challenges in modeling and analyzing different aspects of virus dynamics. All are welcome to submit an abstract and/or register at: https://www.fredhutch.org/en/events/workshop-on-virus-dynamics.html
The registration fee is waived for trainees (including graduate students, postdocs, medical students, residents, and fellows who are interested in modeling and analyzing different aspects of virus dynamics) AND those individuals from underrepresented countries—Check the list to see if your citizenship qualifies you for a waiver of the registration fee: https://www.fredhutch.org/content/dam/www/Events/virus-dynamics-workshop/Click-Here-Country-Registration.pdf
