BSP Conference 21-25 June: Parasites Online 2021

 

For 2021, in place of our usual Spring Meeting, we will hold an online meeting over five days during the Summer (21st-25th June). We have an exciting programme of scientific content, which will be delivered through a virtual conference interface designed to maximise opportunities for interaction, through live Q&A sessions, breakout discussion rooms and virtual trade stands for our exhibitors and sponsors.

This year, we will run the conference with two streams. You will still see our usual mix of high quality themed scientific sessions, keynote speakers and presentations by postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers.
