The Pirbright Institute receives strategic funding from BBSRC

The Pirbright Institute Centenary Conference


The Pirbright Institute has been prominently involved in research to prevent and control infectious diseases of livestock since 1914 when the first cattle testing station was established at Pirbright to combat tuberculosis.

100 years on and The Pirbright Institute is now a world-leading centre of excellence in surveillance and research aimed at preventing and controlling viral diseases in livestock and viruses that spread from animals to people.

We invite you to join us at The Pirbright Institute Centenary Conference which will bring together international experts to present some of the most recent advance in research into livestock and zoonotic virology.

The conference will focus on the following areas:

Day One: Control | Vaccines and Immunology | Pathogenesis
Day Two: Surveillance and Discovery | One Health

A full programme of speakers can be viewed here.
