This publication, "Viruses, Immunity and Immunodeficiency," is based on the first symposium in a series of International Biomedical Symposia sponsored by the College of Medicine of the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. There is an explosive interest concerning the effects of viruses on the immune response, especially the immunosuppressive effects of viral infection. This has come about because of the recognition that the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, which has taken biomedical scientists and the public in general by surprise, is just one of the many examples that viruses can influence the immune response system and, under appropriate circumstances, alter immunity in such a way that an infected individual becomes hi<_lly20_susceptible20_to20_a20_variety20_of20_other20_organisms20_to20_which20_normal20_individuals20_would20_be20_resistant.20_this20_symposium20_series2c_20_sponsored20_by20_the20_university20_of20_south20_florida20_college20_of20_medicine2c_20_brings20_to20_the20_biomedical20_conc2ae_unity20_topics20_of20_current20_interest.20_we20_thank20_the20_members20_of20_the20_faculty20_of20_various20_departments20_of20_the20_college20_of20_medicine20_and20_the20_administration20_of20_the20_college20_for20_their20_support20_and20_encouragement20_in20_having20_these20_symposiaat20_this20_medical20_school.20_this20_volume2c_20_based20_or.20_this20_symposium20_onviruses20_and20_immunity20_is20_a20_good20_examc2ad_20_ple20_of20_the20_interdisciplinary20_nature20_of20_modern20_irrj21_1i1nobiology20_and20_modern20_biomedical20_science20_in20_general.20_many20_investigators20_with20_many20_different20_backc2ad_20_grounds20_and20_training20_experiences2c_20_including20_microbiologists2c_20_immunologists2c_20_biochemists2c_20_oncologists2c_20_and20_physicians2c_20_are20_interested20_in20_how20_and20_why20_viruses20_influence20_the20_immune20_response20_system. susceptible="" to="" a="" variety="" of="" other="" organisms="" which="" normal="" individuals="" would="" be="" resistant.="" this="" symposium="" _series2c_="" sponsored="" by="" the="" university="" south="" florida="" college="" _medicine2c_="" brings="" biomedical="" _conc2ae_unity="" topics="" current="" interest.="" we="" thank="" members="" faculty="" various="" departments="" medicine="" and="" administration="" for="" their="" support="" encouragement="" in="" having="" these="" symposiaat="" medical="" school.="" _volume2c_="" based="" or.="" onviruses="" immunity="" is="" good="" _examc2ad_="" ple="" interdisciplinary="" nature="" modern="" _irrj21_1i1nobiology="" science="" general.="" many="" investigators="" with="" different="" _backc2ad_="" grounds="" training="" _experiences2c_="" including="" _microbiologists2c_="" _immunologists2c_="" _biochemists2c_="" _oncologists2c_="" _physicians2c_="" are="" interested="" how="" why="" viruses="" influence="" immune="" response="">
