Attend the biennial International Symposium on Ranaviruses

The GRC organizes the International Symposium on Ranaviruses in odd-numbered years, generally in conjunction with another organization’s meeting. The symposium brings together a diverse group including veterinarians, virologists, immunologists, ecologists, conservation biologists, evolutionary biologists, and many more. The mix of professionals and students is refreshing, and the atmosphere is friendly and productive.

The Fourth International Symposium on Ranaviruses will be held in Budapest from June 7th-10th, 2017. We are currently selecting the next symposium site! See the Symposium page for more information.
