In 1980, the first conference to convene leading Vibrio researchers met in Louisiana for the “Vibrios in the Environment” conference. In the following 30 years, Vibrio research increased exponentially, bringing these organisms into the forefront of basic scientific discovery and the global public health debate. Vibrios in the Environment 2010 Conference will focus on current research on Vibrio ecology and pathogenesis of humans and marine animals. The conference will also focus on the socioeconomics and public health impacts of Vibrio spp., as well as on current efforts to increase public safety through the development of improved risk assessment tools, early warning systems, improved hygiene, and post harvest treatments of shellfish.
