Funded by a generous endowment from the McNew family of Orange County, California, the annual McNew Memorial Lecture honors the memory of Jamie McNew, a patient with congenital CMV infection. The lecture draws from some of the most talented and innovative researchers from the United States and Canada to present cutting edge research findings relevant to the problem of congenital CMV infection. These include studies in the basic pathogenesis of the virus, studies focused on vaccines and therapies for congenital CMV, and studies of the epidemiology and disease burden caused by CMV.
