Vaccines for Aquaculture
The IVVN’s third annual conference, originally scheduled for March 2020 in Hanoi, Vietnam, was unfortunately cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, we decided to host the conference programme as a series of online symposia.
The fourth IVVN virtual symposium was hosted on Tuesday 6 July, and covered Vaccines for Aquaculture.
The session was chaired by Professor Alexandra Adams (Aquatic Diagnostics Ltd, United Kingdom) and Dr Thảo Ngô (Biotechnology Center of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), and featured talks from invited speakers and speakers selected from abstracts submitted for our Hanoi conference, as well as a poster session. Thank you to all the chairs, speakers and poster presenters for taking part in the session and for everyone who attended and participated in the discussion. A recording of the session is available below.
Chairs: Professor Alexandra Adams (Aquatic Diagnostics Ltd, United Kingdom) and Dr Thảo Ngô (Biotechnology Center of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam)
