Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Matthew Fisher, Professor Sarah Gurr and Professor Neil Gow
An unprecedented number of new pathogenic fungi and variants of extant strains are emerging to cause disease in animals and plants, putting the resilience of wild and managed ecosystems in jeopardy. This meeting will unite researchers sharing a common aim – to exploit advances in biology to understand the drivers causing the emergence of fungi and to forge a research agenda to mitigate their impact.
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on the meeting's home page after the event.
This meeting will be followed by a related satellite meeting on 9 - 10 March 2015.
'Tackling emerging fungal threats to animal health, food security and ecosystem resilience: the state of the art'
NOTE: Attendance at the satellite meeting is by invitation only - if you are interested in attending the satellite meeting, please visit the meeting webpage and click ‘request an invitation’.
This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend. There are a limited number of places and registration is essential. An optional lunch is offered and should be booked during registration (all major credit cards accepted).
