This event will focus on viral components’ stability and interactions, molecular, physical, and computational virology, emphasizing VLPs as carriers and vaccine candidates. Practical activities involve producing circovirus VLPs and performing computer simulations to dissect their stability determinants.


Molecular and Physical Virology; Multiscale Simulation of Viral Particles; Biochemical/Biophysical and Computational Characterization of Virus-Like Particles


Scientists working in Physical and Molecular Virology, from both experimental and computational approaches. Early career researchers and PhD students will be preferentially selected, especially those from Latin America.


A limited number of grants covering accommodation on a shared room basis, living allowances, and local transportation will be provided for students and early career trainees who are nationals of ICGEB Member States. In general, participants are expected to cover their own travel costs.
