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.
Still time to submit abstract for Avian Viruses 2018 (3-4 Sep #Avian18), this year back-2-back with Avian Immunology Research Group (AIRG; 5-7 Sep; https://t.co/ez3xjVFh2y) - both at St Catherine's College, Oxford https://t.co/REIwcbpcAn— Dr Michael Skinner (@DrMASkinner) June 19, 2018
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.
A new virus has been causing disease outbreaks in domestic pigeons in Europe. Register for Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of Avian Viruses, taking place on 3–4 September 2018, to hear Professor Rubbenstroth discuss his findings . https://t.co/y7jGNaaglD #Avian18— Microbiology Society (@MicrobioSoc) August 22, 2018
A new vaccine has been developed for Infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT). This, among other things, will be discussed at the Society’s Focused Meeting: Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of Avian Viruses next week. https://t.co/niEl0bkmAJ #Avian18— Microbiology Society (@MicrobioSoc) August 31, 2018
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.
Its been great 2 days in Oxford attending the Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of Avian Viruses meeting #Avian18 organized by @MicrobioSoc. Lots of new things learnt and made new contacts pic.twitter.com/PIvRaZKBkr— Saba Erum (@SabaErumAmir) September 4, 2018
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.
