Avian Research Symposium 2023

The online symposium aims to raise awareness of exciting research investigating avian biology and using avian model systems. Share and discuss research in avian biology with a focus on highlighting early-career researchers and creating networking opportunities between labs and institutions.

Starts: 7 March 2023 Ends: 9 March 2023

The Avian Research Symposium is organised by early career researchers at the Roslin Institute, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and The Roslin Institute’s National Avian Research Facility on the Easter Bush Campus in Midlothian Science Zone.

The event intends to highlight novel technologies and approaches in avian research, promote interdisciplinary collaboration and encourage researchers unfamiliar with the opportunities provided by using the chick embryo model to join the meeting to learn more.

Students, researchers, and support staff who work with avian species are invited to present on a broad range of topics. The programme will be a mix of short and long-style presentations. We expect topics to include avian welfare and husbandry, developmental biology, genomics, through to infection and immunity.

The Avian Research Symposium 2023 will be an online event, held on three consecutive afternoons, on March 7th, 8th, and 9th 2023. It is hoped that attendees will attend as much of the symposium as possible and join in discussions with our speakers.

"Meet the Speaker" networking events, will also be avaiable to those who attend and have registered for the meeting.

The closing date for speakers to register is Friday 9th December 2022.
