Fourth International Congress on Pathogens

Ohio State’s Global One Health Initiative and global partners are leading the 4th International Congress on Pathogens at the Human Animal Interface (ICOPHAI) that will take place in Doha, Qatar, November 7 - 9 with the theme, "Environmental Challenges and Impact on Global Health."

The ICOPHAI consortium was established in 2011 with the mission to accelerate global capacity and knowledge sharing to effectively reduce the burden of infectious and non-communicable diseases, environmental hazards and their risk factors using the “One Health” platform.

ICOPHAI 2017 intends to bring together a diverse group of scientists from developing and industrialized countries and encourage exchanges using the "One Health" concept. Specifically, the congress will aim to inspire interactions among scientists and with policymakers from various geographic regions and disciplines working in the areas of health, agriculture and environment.

The conference planning committee is currently accepting abstracts for oral papers, panel presentations and posters. The deadline for submissions is June 30, but registration to attend the congress will be open leading up to November 9.

All submissions and registration can be made online at conference-service.com/ICOPHAI17. General ICOPHAI 2017 inquiries should be forwarded to Ashley Bersani, Ohio State Global One Health program manager.
