The CMTV regularly hosts internationally prominent virologists in conjunction with the weekly seminar series of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Many visiting virologists also participate in the seminar series hosted by the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center. Through visits with our graduate students, postdocs, and faculty, these visitors greatly enhance the educational and scientific mission of the Center.
The annual Virology Colloquium is also an important component of the mentoring program of the CMTV. A theme in virology is chosen for the Colloquium each year, and four experts in the field give presentations at a Symposium. Additionally, each faculty Project Leader has the opportunity to interact with members of the External and Internal Advisory Committees and obtain one-on-one advice, recommendations, and suggestions from these internationally recognized leaders in biomedical research.
