We are pleased to announce that the Avian Model Systems Meetings are back after COVID. The 11th meeting will take place on 11-14 September 2023 at the University of Portsmouth, UK. The conference will bring together scientists from across the world whose research focuses on birds. The conference website is now open for registration and abstract submission.
Session topics include:
- Dynamics of development, morphogenesis, organogenesis
- Stem cells and differentiation
- New technologies and resources
- Pharmaceutical and medical applications
- Comparative genomics, evolution and conservation
- Avian immunity, disease resistance, animal welfare
We have lined up exciting keynote speakers. Further speakers will be selected from abstracts, and all attendees will be able to present posters. We will have a plenary discussion with funders and stakeholders on the future of avian models and avian research, and we have set time aside for a PI meeting to discuss the development of resources for the avian research community.
Besides the science, Portsmouth is the attractive waterfront city at the South coast of England, known for its maritime heritage and the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, with quick links to the Isle of Wight and the South Downs National Park. Portsmouth is also known for its shopping opportunities. Portsmouth can easily be reached via London Heathrow and Gatwick airports and Southampton airport. It also has ferry links with the Channel Islands, France and Spain.
The Organising Committee look forward to welcoming you to Portsmouth!
