Seventh International Conference on Mycobacterium bovis 


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Organising Committee of M. bovis 2020, the Seventh International Conference on Mycobacterium bovis, would like to invite you to the beautiful and historic city of Galway on the wild west coast of Ireland from 8-11 June 2020. This is the third M. bovis Conference in Ireland but the first in Galway.

Building on the success of Cardiff 2014, M. bovis 2020 will gather together scientists, policy makers, veterinarians and industry stakeholders from around the world with the aim of identifying constraints and providing practical solutions for the control and eradication of the M. bovis.

The conference will bring together experts on a wide range of M. bovis related themes including: the science/policy interface, epidemiology, surveillance, diagnostics, wildlife reservoirs, social science & economics, vaccination, practical delivery, and innovation for TB control and eradication.

Galway, the cultural heart of Ireland, has officially been designated as European Capital of Culture for 2020. The host of activities that are sure to whet your appetite include world renowned theatre, street performers, traditional Irish music and dance. Experience nature along the magnificent Wild Atlantic Way which stretches over 2,500 km of rugged coastline with spectacular scenery from County Donegal to the north and County Cork to the south. Staying in Galway, why not immerse yourself in the spectacular beauty  and traditional Irish culture of Connemara.

We look forward to extending a céad míle fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) to you all.


Dr. Margaret Good

Chairman of the Local Organising Committee
