Juli 27, 2022 - Juli 29, 2022



Dear students, postdocs and colleagues,

it is our pleasure to announce the 1st workshop of the provisional Society of Virology (GfV) study group “One Health and Zoonotic Viruses” on the topic:

Virus Species Determinants and Transmission

Our aim is to bring together students and postdocs with experts in the One Health field, thereby encouraging and assisting scientific interdisciplinary exchange. We specifically encourage infection biologists, cell biologists, veterinarians and physicians to share their work on zoonotic infections. The interdisciplinary nature of the workshop strives to stimulate new collaborations in One Health and viral zoonoses research. An interactive session on science communication is included. Abstracts may cover various aspects of zoonotic virus infection and One Health also beyond species determinants and transmission.
