27-04-2011 | |

EuroPRRSnet and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona are organising a workshop on PRRS immunology and vaccinology 10-11 June, 2011 prior to the 6th Symposium on Emerging and Re-emerging Pig Diseases in Barcelona.


Enric Mateu and Cinta Prieto have invited a very exciting panel of scientists from the US, Mexico and the EU to discuss immunopathogenesis and vaccine.

This workshop will give room to oral presentations from young scientists in addition to a round table discussion for WG2 and WG3 participants and anyone who has participated in EuroPRRS meetings in the past year.

Abstracts will be accepted until May 10 from young scientists under the age of 35 or, if older, students enrolled in a PhD program. EuroPRRSnet is happy to support European participants up to a limit of ten extra people maximum (Young scientists in priority with selected presentation) for this workshop.

Information including the programme, meeting registration details, abstract submission and hotel booking can be viewed online.
