Avian Infectious Diseases 2021

15 - 17 September 2021

Infectious diseases continue to threaten the sustainability, productivity and growth of the poultry industry worldwide and some present a risk to public health. Many are also present in wild bird populations, with the potential to spill over into domestic birds. The meeting will bring together the scientific community to help find solutions to the biggest challenges in avian infectious diseases 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.
