Gábor Kemenesi from the OneBAT Projet partner University of Pecs, recently presented at the 9th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses (ZOO). The conference took place from June 9–12, 2024, at the Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa in Palermo, Sicily, Italy.

International Conference on Zoonoses

The International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses is a highly esteemed event that brings together an interdisciplinary group of experts, including physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, immunologists, virologists, microbiologists, and public health professionals. The conference provides a crucial platform for discussing the increasing challenges posed by zoonotic diseases—the transmission of infectious diseases from animals to humans—and their economic impacts.

  • Title: Evolution, Ecology, and the Risk Assessment of a Potentially Zoonotic Filovirus in Europe – Abstract Presentation
  • Presenter: Gábor Kemenesi, University of Pecs
  • Date: June 9–12, 2024
  • Abstract: Conference Abstract

In his presentation, Gábor Kemenesi shared baseline data on the Lloviu virus. The research includes soon-to-be-published materials and aims to engage new collaborators from the OneBAT community in this crucial area of study.

The Lloviu virus, a filovirus with potential zoonotic implications, represents a significant area of concern in Europe. Kemenesi’s work is pivotal in understanding its evolution and ecology, which is essential for assessing the risks it poses to public health.
