Emerging Viruses of Zoonotic and Veterinary Importance

Meeting announcement:

Emerging Viruses of Zoonotic and Veterinary Importance


24–26 July 2017.     Churchill College, Cambridge UK

This meeting, building on the success of Emerging Viruses 2015 held in Nottingham, will bring together international researchers with an interest in tackling emerging viruses that affect all species, whether human, pet, production or wild. This will allow cross-fertilisation of ideas and common trends to be identified, as well as discussion of methodologies and prospects going forward.
