Third International Symposium on Ranavirus

Sponsorship Opportunities

The University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine and the Global Ranavirus Consortium are organizing the Third International Symposium on Ranaviruses as a collaborative effort – and we invite you to join us! 


The Third International Symposium on Ranaviruses will facilitate communication and collaboration among scientists, veterinarians, and other partners actively involved in conducting research on ranaviruses, diagnosing ranaviral disease, and creating conservation plans for affected species. Participants will interact in an interdisciplinary setting to review state-of-the-art science, healthcare, and to formulate goals and management strategies to curb the threat ranaviruses pose to wildlife and aquaculture. Participants will have ample opportunities to share ideas and discuss relevant topics on ranaviruses during the meeting discussion sessions. The goals of the sessions will include the identification of urgent research directions, reoccurring issues with ranavirus research and diagnostic cases, and immediate education & outreach needs.
