ANSC’s Dr. Andrew Broadbent has been elected to the governing council of the American Society of Virology (ASV) as their Veterinary Virology Councilor, complimenting his research program on avian viruses of economic importance to the poultry industry.

The ASV elections involved the international membership selecting leadership positions for the governing Council of the society to seat Councilors for three-year terms. Dr. Broadbent is excited to help build a stronger society and represent the interests of veterinary virologists in the ASV.

In his Councilor role, Broadbent will be co-organizing the ASV annual meetings and Veterinary Virology symposia. He will also be part of mentoring those at early career stages, and advocating for those at all career stages, while strengthening links between ASV and other agricultural and veterinary societies and associations.

Founded in 1981, the American Society for Virology is the professional society for virology researchers with an international footprint to stimulate discussion and collaboration among researchers. The Society strongly advocates for evidence-based science and expert leadership in public decision making.
