Welcome to the Swedish Society for Virology

The Swedish Society for Virology was founded in 2009 to provide a forum for all interested in virology, including clinical, pre-clinical, environmental, veterinary, plant and/or microbial (phage) virology. The aim of the Society is to promote the exchange of information and stimulate discussion and collaboration among scientists active in all aspects of virology.

The Society has from 2020 decided to launch “Pandemifonden” for the purpose of reaching out to the public with information regarding virus infections and pandemics, and also with the aim to raise funding that will strengthen Swedish research within virology, with the long-term goal to hinder pandemic caused by viruses in the future.

The society will present current information regarding upcoming events and meetings, grants, positions, and education opportunities. Contact webmaster if you want to announce for a meeting, positions, courses, jobs etc, that is related to virology.
