Zoonoses – changing risk potential in a changing world : FLI Press release 08/2019
Zoonoses 2019: International Symposium on Zoonoses Research will be held in Berlin from October 16 to 18, 2019, with a focus on „Neglected Tropical Diseases“ Insel Riems, 9 October 2019. Globalisation and climate change also serve to promote the spread of zoonoses. In our modern world, zoonoses, infectious diseases which can be transmitted between animals and humans, are developing from local to global health risks, as demonstrated impressively by the first confirmed West Nile virus infection in humans in Germany. This increases the need for well-founded international and interdisciplinary research into the control of zoonoses. At the International Symposium on Zoonoses Research in Berlin, more than 350 scientists will get together to exchange information on the latest developments in zoonoses research across disciplines in order to meet the current challenges in this research field.
