Event: North American PRRS Symposium
North American PRRS Symposium 2017

The NA PRRS Symposium is an annual conference for scientists, diagnosticians, practitioners and producers who are interested in porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), the most costly viral disease to ever face a global swine industry. The meeting is further expanded to include emerging and foreign animal diseases, such as Seneca Valley virus (SVV), porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD), African swine fever virus (ASFV), classical swine fever virus (CSFV), and other high-consequence diseases of swine. Scientific topics include disease control, vaccines, pathogenesis, diagnostics, epidemiology and host genetics. Abstracts covering all of these topics/viruses will be accepted. Students and postdocs presenting posters or talks can apply for support through the David A. Benfield travel fellowships.

In 2012, the North American PRRS Symposium (NA PRRS) partnered with the National Swine Improvement Federation (NSIF) Conference to provide a world-class meeting devoted to swine health. Together again for 2017, the two conferences represent a new emphasis on the role of host and viral genetics in swine health and the control of disease.
