Leading Scientists From Around the World Headed to Kansas for Symposium on Combating Deadly Infectious Diseases
Date:11/13/2008

OLATHE, Kan., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In yet another sign of Kansas' leadership in addressing global challenges in the animal and human health sectors, an estimated 150 scientists from around the globe are coming together this week at Kansas State University for an international symposium on zoonotic diseases, which are diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans.
