Bordetella Pertussis Symposium, EUPertStrain 2020, will take place online
EUPertStrain Genomics 2020, initially planned to be held physically on the 24th and 25th of September at Institut Pasteur Paris, has gone virtual and will be free to attend.
We are delighted to bring speakers from around Europe for this one-day visioconference, which will take place on 24th September 2020
The event will feature two mains sessions:
In the morning, one session on the Epidemiology and Biology of the pathogen, Bordetella pertussis
In the afternoon, one session on Vaccination and Immunology against pertussis
Here is the draft Agenda.
The sessions will include two types of talks: 10 minutes talks + 5 min discussion, or three minutes flash talks. The latter 3-min talks will be suitable for rapid communications on ongoing projects or surveillance activities that do not warrant a full length talk. They will allow to listen to more speakers within the single day of the meeting.
The call for abstracts is closed.
Registration. If you would like to attend the meeting, please fill this form prior to July 13th. (Please note this is a closed event, dedicated to national reference laboratories in European countries, and their collaborators in the field of pertussis epidemiology, diagnosis, immunology and vaccination)
Social event: a virtual Get Together will be organized the day before (September 23rd, 16:00-18:00) to say hello, exchange informally, and make sure that connections work.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact us: + 33 1 45 68 80 05 or Isabelle.firstname.lastname@example.org
