The American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) will sponsor a series of 
virology lectures highlighting recent progress in vaccine development and 
new directions in our approach to working with and understanding animal 
viruses. The series will have relevance to virologists, as well as other 
laboratory and professional personnel. It is hoped that the selection of 
topics will reinforce the idea that the study of viruses can produce 
knowledge that not only offers direct benefits to humans, such as vaccine 
development, but also indirect and sometimes unpredicted benefits in our 
understanding of biological systems.

An outstanding group of invited speakers will provide information on the 
extent to which our increased understanding of viruses now makes possible 
not only improved control methods, but also allows certain viruses to be 
utilized as tools. The seminar is geared toward basic and applied 
researchers with an interest in how current efforts are changing the face 
of virology.
