Abstract submission is closing for Avian Infectious Diseases 2021. Submit your abstract before 14 May 2021, for the chance to present your research at this Focused Meeting.

Avian Infectious Diseases 2021 will take place digitally from 15–17 September 2021. The Focused Meeting will bring together the scientific community and provide a forum for discussion not only on individual pathogens but also on cross-cutting areas of relevance to multiple infections, for example, the effect of immunosuppression on secondary infections, microbiota–pathogen interactions and multivalent vaccines against several infections.

The meeting will also welcome a host of invited speakers who will present their work and research at the Focused Meeting.

Abstract submissions

We are accepting offered papers, with a focus on the following topics:

  • Molecular and cell biology
