SOUTHERN ENGLAND VIROLOGY NETWORK
WHAT IS THE SOUTHERN ENGLAND VIROLOGY NETWORK?
The Southern England Virology Network (SEVN) is a network of virologists based at research institutes and universities across Southern England. SEVN provides a forum for researches to present their latest findings, discuss techniques and technologies, and to form future collaborations.
SEVN holds three to four meetings each year at various participating centres in order to hear the latest research and discuss ideas for future work. Seminars frequently focus on the work performed by the numerous world-renowned virologists at these reseacrh centres, however particular emphasis is placed on offering the opportunity for early career scientists to present their work at these specialist meetings
