Students are an integral part of the Australasian Virology Society and we are committed to support and encourage the next generation of virologists in the Australasian region. The AVS promotes student research at annual symposiums by providing a platform for students to present their work and network with peers.

We are continually looking for ways to improve the AVS student member experience. If you have any suggestions or feedback on ways we can further promote and support our students, or have general related enquiries, get in touch with our student representative using the form below.
