OneHealth and EcoImmunology Symposium

Welcome

We wish you a warm welcome to the OneHealth and EcoImmunology Symposium. This event is brought to you by Sustainable Futures Healthy Futures challenge area, the Lydia Becker Institute for Inflammation and Repair Ecoimmunology and context-specific Immunology branch, the Manchester Environmental Research Institute and The Company of Biologists.

We are so excited to get going with the day, but in the meantime feel free to check out our programme, keynote speakers and posters.

Zoom links can be found on the schedule page under each session's link.

Virtual Poster Session - Date and Time: TBC

A virtual poster session will be taking place following the event so that online delegates and those that attended in person but perhaps couldn't get round all the poster they wanted to at the event can engage with and ask questions about the poster presentations.

The exact date and time of this session is yet to be confirmed but you will receive an email with the details as soon as they are finalised.
