Best Oral and Poster Presentation Awards
To encourage young influenza researchers, ESWI awarded prizes for the best oral and the best poster presentations at the Fourth ESWI Influenza Conference in Malta (11-14 September 2011). All chairs and co-chairs had been asked to cast their votes for the most remarkable presentation (oral/poster) they had seen. From the list of nominees, two winners had been selected by the Young Scientist Awards Committee, chaired by Prof Claude Hannoun:
- Sander Herfst receives the best oral presentation award for his lecture called "Why is HPAI H5N1 virus not transmissible via aerosol? An extensive mutational and phenotypic analysis of mutant and reassortant H5N1 viruses."
- Patricia Resa-Infante receives the best poster presentation award for her poster entitled "Structural and functional characterisation of an influenza virus RNA polymerase-genomic RNA complex".
Both winners will receive the official certificate, a brand new iPad and an invitation to participate at the Fifth ESWI Influenza Conference.
The 2011 conference was organised by GCO (Global Conference Organisers). If you have any questions concerning the conference, please contact us by email: email@example.com or by
