North American PRRS Symposium 2016
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is the most costly viral disease to ever face the swine industry. The PRRS symposium is further expanded to include emerging and foreign animal diseases, such as Seneca Valley virus (SVV), porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD), African swine fever virus (ASFV), classical swine fever virus (CSFV), and other high-consequence diseases of swine. Scientific topics include disease control, vaccines, pathogenesis, diagnostics, epidemiology and host genetics. Abstracts covering all of the above topics will be accepted. Students and postdocs presenting posters or talks will be eligible to apply for the David A. Benfield travel fellowship progam. Registration includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday, along with NA PRRS (Saturday) and CRWAD (Sunday) evening poster sessions. Attendees requiring visas are encouraged to register early.
