8th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses with an emphasis on Emerging and Transboundary Infectious Diseases, which will take place in Manhattan, Kansas, May 7 – 10, 2017.
There is a significantly raised awareness that zoonoses and transboundary diseases threaten both human and animal health. Therefore, research and policy should focus on a “One Health” perspective in local, national, and international environments.
To properly address these issues, the conference plans to have special workshops which will be organized by experts in their fields. Potential topics might include: the ecology of emerging zoonotic and transboundary diseases; the role of wildlife in emerging zoonoses and transboundary diseases; cross-species transmission of zoonotic and transboundary pathogens; emerging and neglected influenza viruses; hemorrhagic fever viruses; emerging and transboundary bacterial diseases; outbreak responses to zoonotic and transboundary diseases; food-borne zoonotic diseases; prion diseases; and modelling and prediction of emergence of zoonoses and transboundary diseases.
