Symposium

Dutch Symposium on Emerging Bunyaviruses

The family of the Bunyaviridae is the largest virus family on planet Earth. It comprises plant viruses of agricultural concern and animal infecting viruses that pose threats to both veterinary and human health. Bunyaviruses are transmitted by insects, ticks or rodents, which adds to the challenge of controlling these important pathogens. This symposium brings together world leading scientists in the field of bunyavirology and will provide an overview of recent top-level research in the areas of bunyavirus epidemiology, pathology, molecular virology and vaccine development.
After the symposium, we cordially invite you to attend the retirement reception of Prof. Rob Moormann to acknowledge his contributions to veterinary vaccine development and his initiative to start research projects on animal infecting bunyaviruses in The Netherlands.
