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.

Education and Career Development Workshop
Put Down the Pipette and Pick Up the Pen:
Getting Your Work Published

Convenor:  Glenn Rall, Fox Chase Cancer Center
The Education and Career Development Committee of the American Society for Virology presented a workshop focused on the process of publishing your work.  A panel of experts offered insights on how to know when it is time to put your data together, how to communicate your work clearly and enthusiastically, and into the publication process itself, once the manuscript has been submitted.  This special session was principally aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, although anyone registered for the meeting was welcome to attend.  The speakers have made their presentations from this workshop available here on our website.
