Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of Avian Viruses - a view from Twitter

Posted on September 13, 2018   by Kaisa Berg

The Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of Avian Viruses Focused Meeting took place at St Catherine's College, University of Oxford, UK, between 3–4 September. We've turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting. 


This year the timing of the meeting was designed to line up with Avian Immunology Research Group.

In the run up to the event, we shared news of some of the talks, one presenting new research on a virus plaguing domestic pigeon populations in Europe and one on a vaccine being developed for infectious laryngotracheitis.

Then it was time to head to Oxford.

Microbiology Society Chief Executive Peter Cotgreave attended the second day of the meeting.

At the end of the last day, the delegates gathered to have a photo taken together.

Congratulations to Samantha Ellis, who won the poster prize.

We were happy to receive positive feedback from delegates after the event.

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped out at the meeting. We hope you enjoyed the day and hope to see you at another Society event soon.
