It is a great pleasure to invite you to the “International Conference on Respiratory Pathogens (ICoRP)”. This event will be a joint effort of the DFG Research Training Group 1870 “Bacterial Respiratory Infection - Common and Specific Mechanisms of Pathogen Adaptation and Immune Defense”, the DFG Collaborative Research Center Transregio 34 “Pathophysiology of Staphylococci in the Post-Genome-Era” and the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI), Federal Research Institute for Animal Health.
The “International Conference on Respiratory Pathogens” will focus on current research efforts in understanding co-infections of the respiratory tract caused by viruses, in particular influenza A and RSV, and bacteria, i.e. Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and group A streptococci. Therefore, renowned speakers have been chosen to give a broad, up-to-date overview of this rapidly evolving and multi-disciplinary field. This event shall bring together an outstanding and diverse group of experts from basic and applied science from across the globe to foster the scientific exchange and to establish new contacts or collaborations.
This truly interdisciplinary event will be held from 01-03 November 2017 in Rostock, Germany. We are sure that the historic environment of Rostock, a former member of the Hanseatic League, combined with the modern aspects of a university town at the Baltic Sea will be the perfect place to create a stimulating atmosphere of exciting talks, inspiring discussions, and scientific curiosity.
We are looking forward to your participation and welcoming you in Rostock in November 2017!
