CONSISE International Meeting

CONSISE International Meeting
3-4 September 2013
Westin, Cape Town South Africa

Convention Square • Lower Long Street • 8001 Cape Town • South Africa

CONSISE, the Consortium for the Standardization of Influenza Seroepidemiology, is holding its 4th international meeting immediately preceding Options.  We invite interested Options participants to join for an overview of CONSISE activities and recent updates. 

CONSISE is a growing international partnership of individuals from institutions working on influenza and other respiratory pathogens from all over the world.  CONSISE started in 2011 (though not called CONSISE at the time) following recognition that influenza serology for pandemic flu needed better standardization.  For more information about CONSISE, see
