Infectious Disease Genomics Symposium 2024

Infectious Disease Genomics Flyer

The One Health Genomics Edinburgh and Edinburgh Infectious Diseases networks are delighted to invite you to a joint symposium - this one-day event will showcase infectious disease research that takes a genomics approach to explore the interactions of hosts and pathogens.

There will be a guest lecture by Prof Johannes Krause from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, who uses ancient DNA to investigate the evolution of humans and their pathogens, alongside a fantastic programme of University of Edinburgh speakers presenting exciting new work in plants, animals, humans, and aquaculture.

There will also be poster sessions throughout the day, and opportunities for poster pitches by ECRs.

The full programme will be confirmed early in the summer, when registration will open.  For now, please save-the-date – 6th September 2024 – we hope to see you there!
