Organised by the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) with the Centre for Ecology and Conservation (CEC).

Pathogen host shifts are a major source of emerging infectious diseases in humans, animals and plants. Despite the importance of understanding how pathogens are shared between hosts, there is still much to learn about the ecological and evolutionary drivers of pathogen emergence.

This two-day symposium will showcase the work being done by researchers from the University of Exeter and beyond providing an opportunity to discuss the cutting edge research with national and international colleagues.

Potential speakers are encouraged to submit an abstract to talk about host-pathogen interactions and the ecological and evolutionary factors that drive pathogen emergence. Presentations may be linked to host and pathogen evolution, ecology and the complex interactions between the microbes and parasites associated with hosts.  Our ability to understand these processes is key to maintaining sustainable futures in human health. This symposium will showcase current work, develop new research areas and build new partnerships. The meeting will be open to ~50 participants and will be free to attend.

We now are accepting abstracts for talks and posters, please submit your abstract by 28 February 2023 using this form. We would like the whole community to come together for what promises to be a great event. We encourage presentations from Early Career Researchers and Professors alike.

‌Organising Committee: Ben Longdon, Camille Bonneaud, Michiel Vos, Bridget Watson, Amy Lloyd-Foster, Sarah Ashton, Amrita Sharma, Jane Wills
