Congratulations to Carolyn Lee (Kenney Lab) on receiving a $600 travel award sponsored by Boehinger Ingelheim to attend the 2022 NAPRRS/ NC229: International Conference of Swine Viral Diseases meeting held December 2-4, 2022 in Chicago.
The North American PRRS Symposium was formed in 2003 as a venue to annually bring together the members of the swine disease community, including researchers, industry professionals, and field practitioners. At that time, PRRS was considered the prime example of the challenges faced by global swine industry. In recent years, the emergence and spread of new swine viruses, such as PEDV and ASFV, has expanded the focus to include emerging and transboundary swine diseases. Integration with the USDA NC229 multi-state project on swine diseases provides the means to deliver a much larger and more comprehensive meeting experience. The 2022 meeting will be expanded into a 3-day international conference with emphasis in translational research.
