The indirect effects of cytomegalovirus infection: mechanisms and consequences

14 - 15 October 2024 09:00 - 17:00 The Royal Society Free Watch online
Book event
Under a magnification of 25X, and using immunofluorescence microscopy, this photomicrograph revealed the presence of the cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigen.

Discussion meeting organised by Dr Tom Yates and Dr Helen Payne. 

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is common. The term ‘indirect effects’ describes a statistical excess of cardiovascular disease, non-CMV infections, and other pathology seen in people with CMV absent histological evidence of CMV-associated tissue damage. This meeting will bring together laboratory scientists, paediatric and adult clinical academics, epidemiologists and trialists, to discuss the latest research on indirect effects, from mechanisms to clinical significance.
