This year a European Yersinia Conference will take place in Jena. It was developed from the German National Yersinia meetings and is organized by the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut.
To initiate and further stimulate interaction between European researchers active in the fields of pathogenicity, epidemiology, evolution, ecology and diagnostics of yersiniae, a multifaceted conference program will be set up including keynote talks, plenary discussions and numerous state-of-the-art presentations by experts in the different research fields.
Additionally, several informal get-togethers will facilitate scientific exchange between invited speakers and participants and allow to establish new contacts and collaborations.
For diner, we will visit a traditional restaurant in the historic center of Jena.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I am looking forward to meeting you all in July 2018 here in the middle of Germany for a successful and stimulating conference!
Prof. Dr. Thilo M. Fuchs
