Hereby we want kindly want to announce the 2nd Symposium of the Geneva Centre for Emerging Viral Diseases «Understanding Emerging Viral Diseases and their Public Health Impact», taking place at the Campus Biotech from April 10-12, 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland (https://www.unige.ch/emerging-virus-symposium).
With a total of 30 high-profile speakers from 12 countries, we will cover surveillance, diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics and epidemiology of selected priority viruses, including late breakers on on-going outbreaks and first-hand experience from the field. Complemented by “out-of-the-box” evening lectures, we believe that we have put together an amazing and scientifically highly stimulating program. In this two-day educational symposium we will foster exchange and collaborations on emerging viral diseases, not only within the academic sector but also beyond, it includes institutions like WHO, MSF, ICRC and others. We believe that this symposium is a unique opportunity for the invited world-class specialists on emerging viral diseases to strengthen the role of our Centre and the research landscape in this timely field in Switzerland.
