The Australasian Virology Society
The Australasian Virology Society aims to promote, encourage, support and advocate for the discipline of virology in the Australasian region. The society was incorporated in 2011 after 10 years operating as the Australian Virology Group (AVG), 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.
