First annual meeting

The iAds consortium met after one year at the first annual meeting. It was held in Leiden (NL) on April 16, 2024. Due to the bad weather conditions, representatives from CNRS and Umea University could not travel to Leiden, and they followed the meeting online.

The team of PIs was strengthened by new recruitments of PhDs and PostDocs. The achievements and progress of the first year of the project were presented by each WP leader. Scientists involved in the project presented their work done, and the work plan for the next 12 months was discussed. The meeting ended with the Steering Committee Meeting.

The next meeting should be held in Madrid in 2025.

3rd AdenoNet meeting

Spanish Adenovirus Network: from basic biology to nanobiomedicine

The 3rd meeting of the Spanish Adenovirus Network took place on February 15-16th 2024 at the Instituto de Biomedicina de Sevilla (IBiS).

Invited speakers: Profs. Niklas Arnberg (Umeå University, iAds partner) and Gunnel Halldén (Queen Mary University of London / Astra Zeneca).

The programme of the meeting is available on this link.

AdenoNet brings together 10 internationally recognized Spanish groups focusing on the study of AdV, from their detection in nature to their clinical impact and their uses in virotherapies, through the architectural analysis of the viral particle, its assembly, and interaction with the host. AdenoNet will allow these groups to interchange ideas, resources and materials to strengthen the impact and visibility of their research. Their collaborative work is bound to produce pharmaceutical applications in antiviral treatments, gene transfer, vaccines, oncolysis or biomedical imaging, benefiting society as a whole.
