11th GABRIEL network meeting 2021 group

From November 7 to 10, 2021, over 100 delegates representing researchers, physicians, specialists in laboratory diagnostics, academics, and scientists, coming from both public and private sectors and over 15 countries, convened in person and online at the Les Pensières Center for Global Health in Veyrier-du-Lac, France, for the 11th GABRIEL network meeting. This report provides highlights of this symposium, including summaries of speeches and the main points of discussion.

The GABRIEL network meetings have become a forum for members to exchange experiences, present new collaborative opportunities, and review and examine the most recent scientific research in infectious diseases. For the first time, this year's program included presentations on the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those on infectious diseases that have been regularly addressed in the past, such as tuberculosis, acute respiratory infections, and antimicrobial resistance. The full day session devoted to COVID-19 facilitaed discussions on advances in epidemiology, genomics, and surveillance of the infection in various parts of the world.

As in previous years, the program included the “GABRIEL Young Scientist Award”, created to enable promising young scientists from low- and lower-middle-income countries to advance their careers by allowing them to speak about their research at international scientific meetings. Two winners were selected for this year's best presentations.
