NERC-EMHH Environmental Microbiological Risk Symposium

14th March 2018
Education Centre and Main Hall, Royal Geographical Society, London

The VIRAQUA and RESERVOIRS projects are joining together to provide a forum for the discussion of viruses and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in UK waters. Prominent researchers from both academia and industry will gather to discuss the latest knowledge and thinking on viral risk management and antimicrobial resistant bacteria/genes in the form of keynote talks and short presentations to initiate discussions and an exchange of ideas on science, risk and future policy options. We aim to show stakeholders how research findings from the programme can be implemented and lead discussions to ascertain the next focus for the next generation of research programmes.

The vision of NERC’s Environmental Microbiology & Human Health programme is to provide the scientific evidence base to support fast and efficient identification of pathogenic microorganisms and biological material in the environment. VIRAQUA and RESERVOIRS report on the aquatic theme of the programme.

Numbers are limited, so to book your place at the symposium please contact Emma Green
