Upcoming workshop – Ecology meets Epidemiology

dsc_04142On 22-23 March we will host a lunch-to-lunch workshop on disease ecology in Kalmar, Sweden. This workshop is arranged by  One Health Sweden, a network that promotes collaboration between researchers with interest in zoonotic infections and antibiotic resistance in Sweden and beyond.

At the Ecology meets Epidemioloy workshop we wish to gather scientists from biological, veterinarian and medical faculties to discuss the latest topics in disease ecology, ranging from animal ecology, disease epidemiology and immunology. We especially encourage young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) to come and present their work, meet senior researchers and exchange ideas with peers.

You can register now at the workshop’s homepage. From the abstracts we will select presenters for oral communications. Among the keynote speakers we have:

  • Nicolas Gaidet, Animal and Integrated Risk Management unit, CIRAD, France – An ecological approach to health: the case of avian-borne viruses
  • Elinor Jax, Max Planck Institute of Ornithology, Germany – Gene expression profiling of whole blood as a means of detecting an immune response in an avian non-model species
  • Gunilla Hallgren, National Veterinary Institute, Sweden – Anthrax in Sweden, from past to present
  • Lars Råberg, Functional Zoology, Department of Biology, Lund University, Sweden

More information and call for abstract can be found on the homepage – which will be updated as we go along.

It would be great to see you in Kalmar!
