IPFA/PEI 30th International Workshop on Surveillance and Screening of Blood-borne Pathogens

2024 Marks the 30th anniversary of our event and IPFA and PEI are delighted to announce that the fully onsite workshop will be hosted by the Aarhus University Hospital, taking place in the wonderful city of Aarhus, Denmark on 15 & 16 May, 2024.

It is appropriate that we return to a Nordic country for our 30th anniversary following the launch of this important international meeting in Helsinki, Finland in 1993. But also to acknowledge the innovative initiatives contributing to blood safety and public health from this region.

The scientific programme is under development and will reflect feedback from delegates expressing their wish to maintain a focus on microbiological safety of blood and PDMPs. Topics identified for the workshop will include:

  • HIV, PrEP and MSM donors
  • Hepatitis B
  • Commensal Viruses in Donors
  • Testing vs Inactivation of blood and plasma-borne viruses: methods, yields and reduction capacity
  • Vector borne Diseases
  • Updates on selected topics
  • Industry research and developments

We will provide further details once the programme has been developed.

As always, we look forward to meeting our regular attendees and new delegates where you can be sure of a warm welcome and stimulating and informative scientific discussion led by experts in the field.

We warmly invite you to attend this meeting but, for now, please save the date in your calendar!
