IPFA/PEI 27th International Workshop on Surveillance and Screening of Blood-borne Pathogens

The International Plasma Fractionation Association (IPFA) and the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut (PEI) are planning a virtual edition of the 27th annual International Workshop on Surveillance and Screening of Blood-borne Pathogens to take place in 2021.

Blood-borne pathogens:
Keeping the blood supply safe

This workshop on blood-borne pathogens will address the detection, inactivation and epidemiology of new and old agents, that threaten the safety of blood components and plasma derivatives including the costs and regulation of safety interventions. The scientific programme will maintain valuable and important elements of the previous Workshops, including open and inclusive discussion between all stakeholders and will also include contributions from researchers and colleagues beyond the immediate field of transfusion. Over the coming months, our committee of recognised international experts will develop the scientific programme which will provide in-depth, up to date coverage of current and emerging issues of blood safety.

As soon as dates for a virtual 2021 meeting have been identified, we will update our website and inform all subscribers via an email mailing.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards,

Dr Paul Strengers Executive Director IPFA
Dr Michael Chudy Head Molecular Virology PEI
