NorthTick-ESGBOR international webinar
on ticks and tick-borne diseases.

Ticks &
Corona

Due to the corona pandemic, the possibilities to attend scientific conferences and present ongoing scientific work are limited. This webinar is designed to
give you an online opportunity to present your research on ticks and tick-borne diseases. 

The programme will focus on presentations of scientific work, especially by young scientists. There will also be short keynote lectures by experienced colleagues. We aim to include as many oral presentations as possible. If the number of contributions exceeds the capacity of the webinar, some of them will be presented as posters.

The organisation of this webinar is a joint effort between ESGBOR, Sørlandet Hospital and the NorthTick project.


We look forward to receive your contribution!
