Among the selected speakers CVI’s prof. dr. Piet van Rijn will give a presentation entitled “ Structural protein VP2 of African horsesickness virus is not essential for virus replication in vitro “on October 9, and a second presentation entitled “ Development of African Horsesickness (AHS) Disabled Infectious Single Animal (DISA) vaccine candidates by VP2 exchange and NS3/NS3a deletion” on October 10. CVI is also represented by Femke Feenstra at the poster sessions with the poster entitled “Bluetongue virus without viroporin-like NS3/NS3a expression as a safe and effective vaccine candidate”

The international scope and format of the meeting assures wide distribution of state-of-the-art knowledge and promotes productive interactions between attendees of all ranks that will significantly advance research on dsRNA viruses and build a community of basic and inter-disciplinary scientists.
