This is the third meeting in this popular series,organised by Rachel Ulferts from the Beale lab it will bring together influenza virus researchers from the UK and abroad.

Influenza viruses are important veterinary and human pathogens. Yearly epidemics result in high health and economic burdens. The topics covered will reflect the incredibly varied interests and scientific methodologies used by the influenza virus research community. You will learn the latest discoveries in topics ranging from epidemiology, zoonosis and virus evolution, vaccinology, innate and adaptive immunity, host-virus interactions and antivirals to the structure and biochemistry of viral proteins. This meeting will offer ample opportunity in particular for young researchers to present and discuss their ongoing work through talks and posters. Networking events will provide extensive time to establish cross-discipline collaborations.

 We encourage attendees to submit abstracts to be considered for short talks and posters, all abstracts must be in Arial 11 pt. and include presenter, title in bold, authors, affiliations and text (max 250 words). No references.
