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!

#Europic2022 poster sessions showcased the diversity of research within the picornaviruses community. Our delegates were able to share their work, and discuss and exchange ideas with their peers face to face!

In the evening of day three, our delegates visited Skipton Castle. Later on, our delegates enjoyed a lively conference dinner with performances from our microbiologists' band – the Particles.
#EUROPIC2022 Last evening is followed by last morning. Great dancing with the Particles - showing that virologists can have many talents! But now back to polio elimination and novel polio vaccines. pic.twitter.com/XiDjeBKoYB— Heli Harvala (@HarvalaHeli) June 9, 2022
Finally, it was time to announce our poster-prize winners on the final day of #Europic2022.
