Varadero, Cuba – 3 to 6 December 2017

This event includes several symposia dedicated to the latest advances in animal biotechnology. The organizing committee invites EAFP members and colleagues to attend and consider submitting an Abstract to present on one of the sessions of the Aquatic Biotechnology symposium. In this symposium, the latest results in the study of control and manipulation of growth and the immune system in aquatic organisms as tools for aquaculture will be presented. The results related to immune stimulants, adjuvants and vaccines for fish are included. Additionally, there will be conferences dedicated to genomics as a tool for studying marine biodiversity as a source of new molecules and biological mechanisms with practical applications in all aspects of life.The symposium will be held at the Convention Center “Plaza América”, Varadero and is organized by the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Havana, Cuba.

New deadline for abstract submission by 1st October 2017. Please click here for more info.

Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference 2018

Stirling, Scotland, UK – 18 & 19 January 2018

Vaccines represent one of the most cost effective interventions for prevention, control and eradication of diseases.Veterinary vaccines not only protect against animal health but also enhance animal welfare; aid in improving livestock production; meet growth food demands; reduce the need for antibiotics and other drugs (e.g. aquaculture) and finally protect public health from animal diseases that have the potential to transmit into humans. The network conference will provide an opportunity to hear from leading experts in vaccinology as well as networking with research scientists, industrial partners and policy makers. Please note this conference will be limited to 150 delegates.
