If you are interested in developing a WWW site for your lab or organization, please feel free to contact me for any needed advice and/or assistance.



Scientific Societies

This is a collection of the web sites of scientific societies of interest to virologists. These pages often contain information on the society, its interests and goals, staff, and membership as well as pointers to other sites of microbial interest. These sites are listed alphabetically by the type of group.

If you know of a site that isn't here, please submit the URL or contact me.



Virology Societies

  • American Society for Virology - The American Society for Virology was founded in 1981 to provide a forum for investigators of human, animal, insect, plant, fungal, and bacterial viruses, whether the research involves clinical, ecological, biological, or biochemical approaches. The stated aim of the Society is to promote the exchange of information and stimulate discussion and collaboration among scientists active in all aspects of virology. These goals are achieved by means of meetings organized or sponsored by the Society, obtaining for the members reduced subscription rates for virological journals, soliciting travel grants to attend national and international meetings, and representation on national and international councils.

  • European Society for Clinical Virology - The new Society is open to all those interested in virology as causes of diseases in man and animals, whether as general, pediatric or veterinary clinicians, infectious disease physicians, diagnostic virologists or microbiologists, pure or applied virologists or simply for curiosity. It is the successor to the European Group for Rapid Viral Diagnosis and the European Society against Viral Diseases.

  • Hellenic Society of Virology

  • The Danish Society for Virology has now a web-site mostly in Danish, but there is a brief info-page in english.

  • Pan American Society for Clinical Virology

  • The International Society for NeuroVirology was established in 1998 to promote collaboration among researchers within the field of neurovirology, to further knowledge in the area, and to promote the clinical application of this knowledge to prevent and treat neurodegenerative disease and neoplasms in the nervous system. More detailed information regarding the goals of the ISNV, membership in the Society, and Society governance is available at the site.

  • International Society for Antiviral Research - The International Society for Antiviral Research was formally established on May 14, 1987.After many years of skepticism, antiviral chemotherapy had become a reality and there was a need for investigators in the field to periodically assemble with colleagues to exchange information and set up collaborations. ISAR was established to meet this need. In the spring of 1988, a meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia - The International Conference on Antiviral Research - drew more than 400 participants. Following the meeting, the new Society's membership rolls approached 700. It was clear that those in the antiviral research community welcomed the opportunity to have a forum for the exchange of scientific information.

    Since those early beginnings, ISAR has become internationally recognized as an organization for scientist in the field and as offering the premiere scientific meeting on antiviral research. The purpose of ISAR's annual meeting is to provide an interdisciplinary forum at which investigators involved in basic, applied, and clinical research worldwide can meet to review recent developments in all areas of antiviral research. The organizers plan a program to meet the needs of chemists, biologists, virologists and clinicians interested in the field.

    ISAR organizes annual international conferences and produces a newsletter. The society is affiliated with the journal Antiviral Research, the Official Journal of the International Society for Antiviral Research.
