The Australasian Virology Society
The Australasian Virology Society was incorporated in 2011 after 10 years operating as a special interest group, the Australian Virology Group, founded in 2001. AVG began as a regular biennial meeting whose aim was to provide a national forum and opportunity for those with interests in human, animal, plant or prokaryotic virology to meet and discuss wide-ranging issues from basic molecular virology to ecology, disease, diagnosis and control. This meeting is now a regular feature of the Australasian virology calendar. AVS is a natural extension of these activities with the Society’s aim being to encourage, promote and support the discipline of virology in the Australasian region.
