Junior Scientist Zoonoses Meeting


The Junior Scientist Zoonoses Meeting (JSZM) is a central event for young scientists within the zoonoses platform. The annual meeting, which takes place at different scientific locations in Germany, offers participants the opportunity to present their own research work, exchange ideas with established senior scientists, get to know career paths in zoonoses research and expand their own networks. The meeting is designed to promote networking and interdisciplinary exchange in zoonoses research at an early stage of a career. In addition, the JSZM is the election platform for the young scientist`s representative in the Internal Advisory Board of the Zoonoses Platform.


The program of the JSZM is tailored to the needs of young researchers. Key elements are:

  • poster sessions
  • Presentation of career paths
  • Keynotes on current topics in zoonoses research
  • Networking opportunities
  • Election of the junior representatives for the Internal Advisory Board

Follow-up reports and impressions of the past JSZM can be found here.
