NCOH Annual Scientific Meeting 30 May in Amsterdam

A line-up of diverse and very inspiring speakers will present at the NCOH Annual Scientific Meeting 2024 in Amsterdam on 30 May on the topic of Microbiology, food, and our changing climate: Consequences, challenges and solutions.

Global food production and climate change create enormous societal challenges that come with microbial, ecological, and infectious disease consequences, such as antimicrobial resistance and vector-borne diseases. However, the world’s microbes may also provide solutions, such as eradication of mosquitos or enhanced crop yields. Join the meeting to get inspired about the microbiological consequences and solutions to take on these global challenges.

  • One Health approach to infectious diseases in a rapidly changing world – Thijs Kuiken (Erasmus MC)
  • Deploying Wolbachia for elimination of dengue as a public health problem – Cameron Simmons (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia)
  • Innovative strategies to prevent Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases – Joppe Hovius (Amsterdam UMC)
  • Microbiomes as engines of health and sustainability – Fabrice DeClerck (EAT)
  • Insects as feed and food: economic and safety aspects – Ine van der Fels (Wageningen University & Research)
  • The Holomicrobiome Initiative; tapping into the potential of the microbiome to solve societal challenges – Hilde Herrema (the Holomicrobiome initiative | Amsterdam UMC)

Young researchers from our NCOH institutes and associates will pitch their research, with the Best Pitch Award up for grabs. Updates from the NCOH Executive Board and Young NCOH Boards, as well as ample time to meet your fellow One Health colleagues.
