We are excited to announce that the international conference on Transmission of respiratory viruses: From basic science to evidence based options for control will take place in Harbour Grand Hotel, Hong Kong on 19-21 June 2017.

The Conference will bring together researchers working with different respiratory viruses and interested in transmission from different perspectives, including experimental animal models, experimental human infections, basic virology, evolution, the animal-human interface, studies of transmission in hospitals and in the community, infection control and aerobiology of transmission.
