Posted on September 12, 2019 by Ellen Hinkley
IMAV 2019: International Meeting on Arboviruses and their Vectors took place at the University of Glasgow on 5–6 September. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting.
As they travelled to and arrived at the venue, delegates shared their enthusiasm for the upcoming conference.
On my way to Glasgow for the “International Meeting on Arboviruses and their Vectors”...really looking forward to people that can spend hours talking about viruses and arthropods (little freaks like me)#IMAV19 pic.twitter.com/jnxAcq2kK9— IrigoyenLab (@IrigoyenLab) September 4, 2019
VHIT have arrived in Glasgow for international arbovirus meeting #IMAV19 @MicrobioSoc organised by @KohlLabCVR et al. Excited to learn more and see/make friends. VHIT have 2 posters and 1 talk; please do come say hi pic.twitter.com/FWN4iVI9Nv— Team McKimmie (VHIT) (@VHIT_Mckimmie) September 4, 2019
There was a range of fascinating science presented across the two days of the meeting, both via talks...
Such an awesome talk by @scienceCC today at #IMAV2019 #UniversityofGlasgow @MicrobioSoc ! Huge work done regarding maternal-fetal interface during microbial infections with many questions still pending and hypotheses to investigate... #ilovescience pic.twitter.com/5mFzLXgSLp— Wilhelm Furnon (@WFurnon) September 5, 2019

Having a great time at #IMAV19 in Glasgow- up from @IGHLiverpool - exploring the city, eating tunnock’s teacakes & seeing our collaborator Verena Schultz presenting her exciting work on the effect of Zika infection on nervous system cells supported by @ZIKAlliance and @ZikaPLAN pic.twitter.com/8cIyVhwPYB— Suzie Lant (@Suzie_Lant) September 6, 2019
We were lucky to be joined by some potential future scientists, attending the meeting with their parents!
Heading to #IMAV19 excited to hear some great science and see old friends. First day away from Rex but he’ll pop by for a feed and @MicrobioSoc have got me a wee room for expressing milk #winning #mumlife #matleave #sciencemum #howconferencesshouldbedone— stephanie rainey (@Stephgraham28) September 5, 2019
Very posh room for milk production. Very supportive and accommodating so far. Special thanks to Eve Gould @MicrobioSoc sorting out the room and fridge. This sort of support makes being a working mum much easier #sciencemum #IMAV19 #matleave pic.twitter.com/ylezHbHYWv— stephanie rainey (@Stephgraham28) September 5, 2019
We hope everyone enjoyed the meeting as much the delegates who shared their thoughts, and look forward to seeing you at a future event soon.
