Announcing the Irvine H. Page - Harland G. Wood Cleveland Virology
Group Symposium which will be held October 27-29, 1994 in Cleveland,
Ohio.  This symposium is a joint project of the School of Medicine at
Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), the Cleveland Clinic
Foundation (CCF), and members of the Cleveland Virology Group (CVG)
whose affiliates come from various institutions in northern Ohio.

The symposium is being given, in part, to honor Irvine H. Page (CCF)
and Harland G. Wood (CWRU) who both made enormous contributions during
their lives to advance our understanding of medicine and science. The
Page - Wood Symposium will be an annual event, although this year it
has been joined with the Second Cleveland Virology Group Symposium
which is sponsored by the CVG to bring outstanding scientists to the
Cleveland area to discuss current topics in virology.

One and a half days of the three day symposium will be devoted to AIDS with 
sessions on public health and social policy, clinical issues including vaccine 
development, immunology, and treatment, and replication of retroviruses.  The 
second half of the program will focus on virus structure, retrovirus protein 
structure and virus-host interactions.
