The International Nidovirus Symposium is a prominent scientific meeting that focuses on a unique group of viruses infecting a wide range of animal species and humans. Over the past 40 years, the Nidovirus Symposium has evolved into a triennial event that covers all aspects of cutting-edge nidovirus research and technological developments. The nidovirus order is comprised of four families of positive-stranded RNA viruses, including well-known human pathogens like MERS- and SARS-coronavirus and economically important animal nidoviruses like those causing porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRSV), porcine epidemic diarrhea (PEDV), equine arteritis (EAV), and chicken infectious bronchitis (IBV). The symposium will provide an outstanding opportunity for scientists from academia and industry to share their latest research findings, exchange ideas, and develop collaborations.
It is our great pleasure to warmly welcome you to Nido2017, which will include a variety of plenary and poster sessions, roundtable discussions, and ample opportunity for social activities. The program will cover all elements of applied and basic research on nidoviruses. New for Nido2017, the workshop “Translating NidoResearch into Field Applications” will be held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 to engage academic experts with industry professionals for development of nidovirus diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics.
We believe this event will better position us to respond to future disease outbreaks and enhance our capability to develop effective control and prevention measures for both endemic and emerging nidoviruses. We look forward to meeting you in Kansas City!
