This year's symposium focused primarily on COVID-19, but still covered influenza and RSV sessions. The event was attended by over 350 delegates, including representatives from the biomedical, clinical, research, public health, government, and industry sectors. The symposium also welcomed a range of national and international speakers, including:

  • Eddie Holmes, Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases & Biosecurity, University of Sydney
  • Stanley Perlman, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Iowa, USA
  • Jenifer Juno, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Melbourne, Doherty Institute
  • Peter McIntyre, Department of Women's and Children's Health, University of Otago, Dunedin, NZ
  • Bev Menner, COVID Vaccine Lead, CSL Limited
  • Keith Chappell, School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, University of Queensland
  • And many more.

    Due to ongoing restrictions in Melbourne, this event was fully virtual. The event was hosted by ASN Events and run via their online platform.

    The next Symposium will be held in November 2023.
