Our aim is to bring students and postdocs together with experts in the one health field, thereby encouraging and assisting scientific interdisciplinary exchange. We specifically encourage infection biologists, cell biologists, veterinarians and physicians to share their work on zoonotic infections. The interdisciplinary nature of the workshop strives to stimulate new collaborations in one health and viral zoonoses research.

Four keynote speakers will cover topics from species determinants to transmission of different zoonotic viruses. Prof. Dr. Seema S. Lakdawala (University of Pittsburgh, USA), Prof. Dr. Martin Beer (Friedrich-Löffler-Institut Riems, Germany), Prof. Dr. Friedemann Weber (Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen, Germany) and Dr. Nicole Tischler (Fundación Ciencia & Vida, Chile) will share their unique experience and vision. Additionally, we will host a session on science communication via new media.

Please find details on the registration process at the end of this message. All accepted participants will receive the opportunity to present their work in form of an oral or poster presentation and prizes for the best oral presentation and the best poster will be awarded. We will encourage a lively atmosphere with open discussions. We look forward to seeing old faces and meeting new colleagues who share our excitement for viruses and zoonoses.
