The International Feline Retrovirus Research Symposium (IFRRS)

The IFRRS is a bi-annual conference organized since 1991 alternating in the US and in Europe which brings together renowned experts from the international scientific community who study feline retroviruses and related topics and employ feline models of retroviral research. The symposium (Aug 26-29, Leinzig, Germany) focuses on the latest advances in genomics, immunology, and infectious disease as well as gene therapy, anti-viral therapy and vaccine development from the perspective of feline health and the potential translational applications to human health. The IFRRS attracts and brings together a large group of researchers from academia, industry, and veterinary as well as human medicine. As such the symposium provides a forum to share latest cutting-edge research findings and ideas and to foster collaborative efforts to improve feline and human health.
