Now that our Conference in Empúries is ended, we would like to thank all the speakers, attendees, sponsors (ClinCapture/S4 Research, Manremyc SL, Noel Alimentaria, Doctoralia) and supporters (SEPAR, TBVI, UITB, CIBERES) involved. We are aware this type of conferences are uncommon, and at some point we were quite stressed about the idea to gather people with such different backgrounds, from all over the world: experimental animal modellers, physicians, surgeons, pathologists, vets! However, we are very happy with the result: people started talking, sharing, and new collaborations and opportunities emerged; we all learnt a lot, and discovered there still is a lot to be done in the field. And because of the relaxed environment -flipflops, the beach and the sun- we worked a lot….while we were having fun.
We also would like to stress out the fruitful TBVAC2020 WP2 meeting we had on the first day, guided by our WP leader, Pr. Frank Verreck.
We do believe this conference was useful to plant a seed that now we want to germinate… in order to continue the work started. So let’s say this is just the beginning! (to be continued)
