VFU pořádá konferenci Primate Parasitology

Primate Parasitology: Development, Methods and Future je název mezinárodní konference na téma parazitologie primátů, která se bude konat v první půlce června na Veterinární a farmaceutické univerzitě Brno. Vystoupí na ní světoví odborníci, jakými jsou například Michael Muehlenbein, Joanna M. Setchell, Klára Petrželková a David Modrý.

 

Zajímavé na konferenci je také to, že účast na ní je bez poplatku. Stačí se zaregistrovat. Přihlášky na konferenci lze posílat do 4. června prostřednictvím registračního formuláře. Na organizaci se univerzita podílí s Ústavem biologie obratlovců AV ČR, dále s Indiana University a Durham University.
