10th Australian Influenza Symposium
The 10th Australian Influenza Symposium was held at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity on 12-13 November 2014 and was attended by over 200 delegates from Australia, the USA, Hong Kong, Singapore and Cambodia. Attendees enjoyed a wide variety of talks encompassing influenza epidemiology, immunology, viral evolution, vaccine development, zoonotic influenza viruses and public health issues. The program also included a lively panel discussion on whether influenza vaccination should be mandatory for Australian health care workers and the issues involved. First time visitors to the Doherty Institute also had an opportunity to see the Institute's facilities and tour Centre laboratories. We wish to thank our international speakers and abstract presenters for their contribution to the program.
