Invertebrate Rearing and Insectary Management

Convenor: Gary Needham

Keynote speaker: Clive Farrell Hon. FRES

Insects and other invertebrates are used in many lines of scientific enquiry including genetics, forensics, agriculture and human health. This necessitates organisations rearing a wide range of species 'in house'.

This SIG aims to bring together like-minded scientists to create a strong, professional network in this increasingly important technical role.

If you wish to offer an oral presentation or attend without presenting, please fill in the registration form below.

We encourage the presentation of culture maintenance or method development successes as well as asking for talks on culturing problems that would allow delegates to engage in troubleshooting sessions.

For further details and to submit abstracts please contact the convenor, details above.

REGISTER HERE Registration deadline 10 June 2018.

Once registered payment can be made via the shop
