The XVIth International Nidovirus Symposium 14th – 18th May 2023 Montreux, Switzerland

Over the past 40 years, the Nidovirus Symposium has evolved into a triennial event covering all aspects of nidoviruses and nidovirology. This eclectic group of viruses are found in humans and animals and include pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2, zoonotic SARS- and MERS-coronaviruses, common cold viruses, and many other economically and highly relevant livestock viruses.

This meeting will provide the opportunity for researchers from across the world to share their latest discoveries and scientific results and exchange ideas face to face. The meeting will take place between the 14th and 18th May 2023 with the stunning backdrop of Lake Geneva at the Montreux, Music and Convention Centre (2m2c), Switzerland.

The organising committee have put together a very interesting scientific program with international speakers. Keynote lectures will be given by Dr. Mike Ryan (Executive Director, WHO Health Emergencies Programme), Prof. Christian Drosten (Charité, Berlin), Prof. Ralph Baric (University of North Carolina, USA), and Prof. Kanta Subbarao (University of Melbourne, Australia).

We are very happy to announce that the UK International Coronavirus Network will team up with the XVIth International Nidovirus Symposium by supporting the “This Week in Virology (TWIV)“ podcast that will be broadcasted on-site by Vincent Racaniello and Guests and by supporting the Keynote lecture of Prof. Kanta Subbarao. We hope to see many researchers of the UK International Coronavirus Network this May in Montreux!

Abstract submission deadline Sunday 19th February 2023.
