NCASM Fall Meeting 2014 Recap:
The NCASM Fall 2014 meeting featured the latest in the world of virology. Good science, good colleagues,and good food. There were nearly 200 who attended the meeting, with nearly half of those coming from our college student ranks. The future of NCASM is looking bright. It takes alot of work to organize and run a meeting of this caliber. Thanks again to the volunteer efforts of the Program Planning Committee.
