CE for Food- and Vector-borne Zoonoses is the local organizer of 1st CYSTINET International Conference.
The main objective of CYSTINET, the European Network on Taeniosis/cysticercosis, is to advance knowledge and understanding of the Taenia solium (pork tapeworm) and T. saginata (beef tapeworm) cysticercosis / taeniosis zoonotic disease complexes.
In line with the One Health concept, the 1st CYSTINET International Conference intends to bring together experts on these diseases from Europe and beyond, from both the medical and veterinary fields as well as environment, sanitation etc., and provide a singular forum for the exchange of knowledge, data and ideas. It aims to be a networking opportunity for both new and existing partnerships. It is hoped that the setting of the conference in Belgrade will encourage the participation of colleagues from South-Eastern Europe.
