DNA Tumour Virus Meeting - 19-24 July 2011

To be held in Trieste, Italy for the third time.

The DNATV Meeting has been held annually since 1969, originally rotating between Cold Spring Harbor and Cambridge UK, and more recently, between Madison, San Diego, Oxford and Trieste.

The meeting attracts close to 300 scientists from around the world (this year participants from over 50 different nationalities from over 30 different countries will be attending).

This edition of the meeting includes close to 120 talks and 100 poster presentations and is a forum for discussing the latest developments in the molecular biology of DNA tumour viruses (SV40, polyoma, Adenovirus and HPV).

The meeting has an amazing pedigree in being the forum in which many of the fundamental aspects of cell biology, that we now take for granted, were first described. This includes the very earliest developments in DNA sequencing, discovery of oncogenes and oncogene cooperation, identification of tumour suppressors including p53 and pRb, identification of regulators of apoptosis, such as Bak and Bax, the earliest descriptions of signal transduction pathways, RNA splicing and polyadenylation, transcriptional enhancers and promoter regulation and identification of factors regulating DNA replication. All of which have contributed hugely to our understanding of basic cell regulatory processes, particularly with respect to the steps which go wrong during the development of cancer.

This year's meeting has included presentations on ground breaking discoveries relating to the characterisation of new human tumour virsuses, the developments of novel therapeutic approaches for combatting viral induced malignancies, and cutting edge developments in our understanding of the mechanisms by which these viruses perturb the infected cell and bring about malignancy.
