International conferences on colonic spirochaetal infections in animals and humans have taken place on a regular basis since 2001. This scientific conference creates a forum to exchange scientific knowledge on the role of spirochaetes in diseases in different target animals including pigs, cattle, poultry and humans.
The aim of the conference is to bring scientists, vets, medical professionals, and post-graduate students together who share an interest in research into spirochaetal infections.
As well as the latest scientific research, discussions will also include practical aspects of diagnosis, management and disease control in pigs, poultry and cattle, and zoonotic aspects and human infections.
We are the proud principle sponsor of the 8th conference which takes place in a digital format due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Through our sponsorship and involvement in the organization of the event, we hope to facilitate future cooperations among researchers based on the free exchange of ideas and discussion of new concepts among the participants.
We extend our thanks to the organizing committe, the scientific committee and the keynote speakers.
