International Conference on Advances in Fish Health

Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor, Malaysia – 4 to 6 April 2017

Aquaculture sector has been identified as one of the main drivers in ensuring food security. However, diseases are among the major obstacles to efficient production in many aquaculture systems. Understanding diseases in aquatic ecosystems should be emphasized to improve and strategize for disease control. Health management, especially the preventive and immunoprophylactic measures such as vaccination, immune boosters and marker-assisted selection of resistant broodstocks and also disease-management practices in culture systems have been increasingly been promoted to ensure sustainable development in aquaculture. This seminar is the platform to learn about the latest advancement of knowledge in aquaculture diseases and health measures.

18th Fish Vaccination Workshop

Wageningen, Netherland – 30 April to 4 May 2017

The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organized annually since 1998.

Impact of Environmental Change on Infectious Diseases 2017

Trieste, Italy – 17 to 19 May 2017

Environmental changes — the manifestations of which can include loss of biodiversity and habitat, increasing atmospheric temperature, rising sea level, and climatic instability (e.g., longer and more severe periods of drought or rainfall) — are likely to affect the prevalence of various infectious diseases by making conditions more (or less) propitious for the survival of pathogens and their vectors, and by inducing mass movement of human and animal populations. This conference will discuss the impact of current and predicted future environmental changes on infectious disease dynamics in people, wildlife, and livestock across the globe, and what actions need to be taken.

International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine Meeting and Conference

Cancun, Mexico – 20 to 24 May 2017

The 48th IAAAM Annual Meeting & Conference will be held at the Marriott CasaMagna in Cancun, Mexico.

 North American Comparative Immunology Workshop

Raleigh, North Carolina – 12 to 15 June 2017

These meetings are designed to foster collaborations among established investigators, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students interested in immune function in a wide range of model and non-model organisms. As a field, comparative immunology is undergoing a transformation propelled by the emergence of new and innovative genomic technologies and the recognition of a wider biological role for immunity. The study of organismal models with simple morphology or exceptional biology provides unique insight into immunobiology, medicine and evolution and the potential for novel therapeutics.
