mEpiWorks aims to:

  • Support the wider application and a better understanding of molecular tools in (veterinary) epidemiology
  • Provide a communication platform for colleagues with similar interests
  • Keep interested colleagues up to date with current research and developments
  • Publicise upcoming job and research opportunities

As a group we offer introductory courses, but also sessions on more specialised subjects such as outbreak investigations, surveillance, source attribution or combining molecular with spatial tools.
