Europic 2022 – a view from Twitter
Posted on June 21, 2022 by Priya Gurung
On 6–9 June 2022, the Society hosted the Focused Meeting, European Study Group on the Molecular Biology of Picornaviruses 'Europic 2022'. We look back at Twitter for some of the highlights of #Europic2022 With a full scientific programme prepared to address recent advances in the field of picornaviruses, we were looking forward to hearing from a range of speakers and poster presenters from across the world, and being able to welcome our delegates in-person!
