10 Jahre vernetzte Zoonosenforschung
2007 - 2017
it is our great pleasure to announce the National Symposium on Zoonoses Research 2017, which will take place from October 12 - 13, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
Building on last year's success with >350 participants, the symposium will once again bring together students and professionals from different zoonoses research areas.
Zoonoses are a global challenge – whether they are well-known or newly emerging diseases, whether they are caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites or prions, or whether they are transmitted directly or via vectors. Well-founded interdisciplinary research is essential to successfully fight this health burden.
For this year´s symposium we have again created an agenda that we hope appeals to everyone. This includes keynote presentations by well-known colleagues as well as selected workshop talks in parallel sessions covering a broad spectrum of topics. In particular, we’d like to highlight the keynotes on Thursday morning and Friday afternoon and as well as two special sessions on Thursday and Friday on Networked Zoonoses Research in Germany.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who submits abstracts and prepares posters and presentations. All of you are making a significant contribution to the success of this conference.
Once again, our Young Scientists Breakfast will take place on Friday morning. Junior scientists are invited to take advantage of this unique opportunity to discuss topics such as career planning, research experiences and other subjects with experienced colleagues during a casual breakfast session.
The conference is designed as a platform for exchanging up-to-date knowledge, meeting new cooperation partners and intensifying existing partnerships beyond scientific disciplines and geographical boundaries. Let’s join forces and bring the One Health idea to life!
