Collaboration News from VIB and CEITEC

Throughout evolution, mammalian viruses co-evolved with their hosts and developed effective ways to counter and evade the antiviral responses of the host immune system. An international team - including VIB and CEITEC scientists - unraveled a molecular strategy used by the widespread parapox Orf virus to counter the mammalian immune system.

The second EU-LIFE strategy meeting was held on October 27-29, 2014 in Oeiras, Portugal.
