You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for the second Cold Spring Harbor Winter Biotechnology Conference on vector targeting which is to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from the evening of Thursday March 11th till after lunch on Sunday March 14th, 1999. This conference will provide a forum for the presentation of the most recent advances in target definition technology and the rational design of targeted vectors for gene therapy. This unique forum is designed to stimulate future research studies in this important area and to promote interactions amongst researchers in diverse basic scientific areas relevant to this field.  Six oral presentation sessions and one poster session are planned. In addition to the invited speakers, the majority of speakers will be selected on the basis of the abstracts submitted. We strongly encourage submission of abstracts by junior researchers in the field.

Topics include:

Physiology-based targeting          
Microorganism display systems         
Transcriptional targeting                                     
Immune regulation for gene delivery  
Phage peptide display                    
Phage panning                                  
Env shuffling                                   
Targeted adenovirus                                                      
Targeted retrovirus                                                    
Targeted Sinbid virus                           
Targeted liposomes                                                      
Targeted DNA                                  
Targeted bacteria                          
HSV VP22 targeting
