Several of our team members recently attended the 64th International Conference of the Wildlife Disease Association (held on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, 25-30th July, 2015), and gave oral presentations or presented posters. There was a great turnout - there were a total of 359 registered conference attendees!
Dr. Raina Plowright's opening plenary presentation was excellent and set the tone for the rest of the conference. Mr. John Giles received much interest on his spatial flying fox and Hendra modelling after his great presentation (being interviewed and video-recorded by Channel 7!). Drs. Jaewoon Jeong and Laura Grogan also gave very good presentations and received great and interesting feedback.
Dr. Alison Peel and Mr. Nicholas Clark presented posters and did us all very proud with their fantastic work.
Congratulations to all! I think we all managed to learn a lot and made some great new connections. Abstracts and posters to follow in the next two posts!
