Do you have expertise in foodborne viruses?

The FSA is holding a conference on foodborne viruses and we are particularly interested to hear from individuals who have expertise in norovirus or foodborne viruses and can contribute to the two-day event.

The conference will be held in London on 15-16 January 2013.

The conference will focus mainly on norovirus research, but will also consider other possible foodborne viruses such as Hepatitis E and Hepatitis A. The purpose of this conference is to increase our understanding of these viruses in the foodchain and to identify the research priorities that need to be addressed by the FSA or in partnership with industry/others funders to underpin measures to control them in the food chain.
