With great pleasure, we invite you to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) that takes place on Monday, June 19th, at Corpus in Leiden.
The meeting is aimed at researchers from our Partners and Associates that are involved in all the NCOH Strategic Research Themes. We particularly encourage young researchers (PhD students, postdocs) to join this meeting. This is an exclusive invitation only event. The event is free of charge but registration is required via the email that you have received in your email box. If you would like to attend, but did not receive an invitation please contact us via [email protected].
Please find the detailed programme here.
In the plenary morning session we will host two keynote lectures by prof. Ab Osterhaus and prof. Hans Heesterbeek. In the afternoon, there will be two thematic parallel sessions where various research projects will be highlighted. This will be followed by a networking event where we aim to stimulate collaborations between the NCOH themes.
We hope to meet you at the symposium.
