Virtual event

New date announced, registration now open!

This annual one-day meeting, now in its forty-sixth year, is held in partnership with RSTMH, Barts Health and Public Health England.

Due to the incredibly busy period for our delegates and speakers in January, this year's event was postponed and will now be held on 18 June 2021.

This one-day meeting brings together microbiologists, consultants in infectious disease, infection control nurses and biomedical and clinical scientists to hear updates on recent “hot topics” in all aspects of infectious disease.

Topics 2021 will be an online event and will cover a range of subjects including One Health, new antimicrobial resistant organisms, and emerging infections.

All talks will available to watch in your own time after the event.

Professor Christine Kreuder Johnson, Professor of Epidemiology and Ecosystem Health and Director of the EpiCenter for Disease Dynamics at the One Health Institute, University of California, Davis

Professor Johnson’s research has pioneered new approaches to characterisation of emerging threats and disease dynamics at the animal-human interface in rapidly changing landscapes that constitute “fault lines” for disease emergence, disease spillover and subsequent spread.
