In line with previous Smögen meetings the scientific program will include Keynote lectures from outstanding international experts in various fields of Virology. However, one novel feature is the introduction of a special lecture to honor Professor Erik Lycke, who together with the late Professor Sven Gard contrived the successful inactivated Swedish polio vaccine. The organizers are proud to announce that Dr. Stanley Prusiner, Nobel Laureate 1997 for “the discovery of Prions, a novel biological principle for infection”, has accepted to give the first Erik Lycke Lecture. Two additional excellent keynote speakers have agreed to join this years symposium Dr. Nihal Altan-Bonnet, Laboratory of Host-Pathogen Dynamics, NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA and Dr. Kartik Chandran, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY, USA
