Little is understood about Yersinia and yersiniosis in New Zealand. This is a dangerous pathogen which affects the health of people and animals and has the potential to compromise food safety. ESR, in collaboration with the Ministry of Primary Industries and the New Zealand Food Safety Science and Research Centre, invites those working on, or interested in, Yersinia or yersiniosis in New Zealand to a one-day technical workshop.
Date: Tuesday 26th March 2019, from 10 am to 3 pm.
Location: New Zealand Food Safety, 147 Lambton Quay, Wellington.
Registration: Yersinia Workshop (external link)
The workshop will provide an invaluable opportunity for you to contribute to discussions over the current state of knowledge of this important pathogen and to identify priority areas for future research. It is a chance to build connections and share information with others working with Yersinia and yersiniosis.
We will bring together New Zealand perspectives on:
– Yersiniosis and Yersinia in public health
– Yersiniosis and Yersinia among animals
– Yersinia in the environment
– Yersinia in foods
– Methods: Challenges and current efforts
After the workshop, participants will be invited to indicate their interest in participating in a working group and/or contributing to a review paper. Places are limited, so register by 8 March 2019 to secure your spot at this key workshop.
