2nd International Symposium on Infectious Diseases of Bats


Registration and Abstract Submission are now open. Registration closes May 1 and abstract submission closes April 14.

Bats host hundreds of infectious agents, many of which impact human, wildlife and veterinary health. Bats also are susceptible to many infectious diseases. This symposium will focus on the relationships of bats and the infectious agents for which they serve as hosts, the zoonotic cycles and ecology of bat-borne infectious agents, the molecular mechanisms of immune evasion and pathogenesis, and the clinical manifestations of human, wildlife and veterinary diseases caused by infectious agents transmitted by bats. 

We will open the symposium with an evening reception on Thursday, June 29. We are planning full days of presentations and posters on Friday and Saturday. As before, we will end each day with questions and open discussion of bats and infectious agents.

If you are interested, you can download the program from the 2014 meeting.
