Conference Site


The meeting will be held at the Moody Gardens Resort on Galveston Island, a barrier island off the coast of Texas. Conference activities and guest accommodations will be provided by the Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center. With 428 luxurious guestrooms and over 100,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting and convention space, this world-class Galveston hotel and conference facility is set among 242 acres of botanical beauty and accented by magnificent pyramids that contain a living rainforest, a Texas-sized aquarium and an I-MAX theater.

The hotel is located approximately 2 miles from the campus of the University of Texas Medical Branch, the oldest medical school in Texas and presently the site of vibrant programs in infectious diseases and immunology. Rich in history, Galveston Island is 45 miles south of Houston and is accessible from either the William P. Hobby Airport (HOU, 35 miles) or the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH, 70 miles).
