This informal meeting will bring together the influenza research community from across the UK and Ireland, to present and discuss ongoing work. Sessions will be organised to cover a wide range of influenza research. 

To make the event as accessible as possible, costs will be limited to the minimum needed to cover catering. The timing is intended to allow new students to attend.
