11th International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis – ICP2012
5th February 2012 @ 12:00 am - 10th February 2012 @ 12:00 am
The International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis, held every 2-3 years under the auspices of the IAP, gathers together the global expertise in the study and control of Johne’s disease. This next colloquium in 2012 will bring leading researchers, livestock industry representatives, veterinarians and public health authorities to an Australian summer in Sydney.
An exciting program is being developed. Scientific sessions will focus on diagnostics, the host immune response, genotyping and microbial diversity, microbiology, molecular biology, pathobiology, genomics, epidemiology, national and international disease control and an important session on food safety, and Crohn’s disease and MAP in the environment. It will feature keynote presentations from speakers of international repute. The valuable contributions of early career researchers will not be overlooked at this meeting.
It is often difficult to keep up with rapidly advancing technologies and in order to appeal to a broad audience, a series of optional ‘Technology Refresher’ sessions are included. In addition, there will be specific sessions to review and discuss practical initiatives for the control of Johne’s disease.
With a view to developing strategic partnerships to overcome this global disease, many formal and informal networking opportunities are also planned. The conference is to be held on the historic and beautiful campus of the University of Sydney. [Source: www.icp2012.com.au/]
