Prominent European and Russian experts will share their knowledge, and present their experience with Rabies eradication, as well as results of their research: Dr Hervé Bourhy from the Pasteur Institute (Paris, France), Dr Florence Cliquet from the OIE Reference Laboratory for Rabies (Nancy, France), Dr Artem Metlin and Dr Anton Karaulov from the Russian Federal Center for Animal Health (ARRIAH, Vladimir, Russia) and others.
