NIDO2021 - XVTH International Nidovirus Symposium
Join us online for the Nido2021 – XVth International Nidovirus Symposium, taking place on the 7th and 8th of June 2021. The Nidovirus symposium is a traditionally triennial gathering of researchers and scientists active in the field of the Nidoviruses, a broad group of pathogens of humans and animals such as the zoonotic SARS- and MERS-coronaviruses, common cold viruses, and many economically highly relevant livestock viruses. The meeting hence provides a unique international forum for sharing scientific results and exchanging ideas as well as for meeting old friends.
The program will consist of:
- 4 plenary sessions (20 speakers)
- 2 breakout sessions with 3 rounds of 4 parallel presentations (altogether 24 speakers)
- 2 poster sessions, each with 2 rounds
- opportunities to separately arrange virtual get-togethers with one or more colleagues for scientific or personal exchange
With an obvious emphasis on the new SARS coronavirus, the symposium will cover the entire field of the nidoviruses with speakers presenting their most recent and ground-breaking results and scientific insights in the molecular biology, host-pathogen interactions, immune responses to infection, viral immune evasion strategies, pathogenesis, mechanisms of (cross-species) transmission, epidemiology and development of vaccines and antiviral therapies.
