Excitement is running high regarding the Ist International Workshop on XMRV – a public forum on the latest XMRV studies, to be held in Washington, DC on September 7 & 8. (See www.virology-education.com/index.cfm/t/Program/vid/1FFCB7B8-FB88-C1D2-92C420E3BCEB0FB0)

It has been announced that:

NIH Director Francis Collins will open the workshop at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, Sep 7. Observers are taking this addition to the program, apparently made Saturday, Sep 4, as a sign of serious interest in XMRV-MLV research at the highest levels of US government.

Unofficially, Dr. Kenny De Meirleir will share details of an as yet unpublished study finding evidence of XMRV in European ME/CFS patients (according to international news sources).

The workshop will conclude with an hour-long webcasted wrap-up Q&A – starting at 5:15 pm EST & 3:15 PST on Wednesday, Sep 8. (See World Clock Time Zone Calculator for the time where you live.)

The Q&A can be viewed at http://videocast.nih.gov when the event is live, and will be offered there within 2 to 3 working days under “past events.” Reportedly the entire workshop will be filmed and many of the individual presentations will also be made available on the Videocast.nih.gov site, eventually.

The Q&A moderator will be Jonathan Stoye (National Institute for Medical Research, UK), and panel members will be Don Blair (National Cancer Institute), John Coffin (American Cancer Society/Tufts), Jerry Holmberg (HHS blood safety), and Judy Mikovits (Whittemore Peterson Institute).
