Welcome to the International Workshop on Viruses, Genes and Cancer - 2010. This is the second edition of the workshop whose title and content reflect the wealth of knowledge that is continuously being mined from investigations of the interactions between human retroviruses and host cells. The program includes a series of keynote lectures that provide a foundation for brief presentations addressing the pathogenesis of the human T-cell leukemia viruses (HTLV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and the molecular mechanisms of cancer. To foster further collaborative research in the fields of viral and molecular oncology, this year's edition also includes a poster session (fuelled by traditional Venetian 'cicchetti').
We wish to thank all of the participants for contributing to the workshop, and hope you will enjoy an intellectually stimulating scientific experience and pleasant stay in Venice.
