Göttingen Minipigs Symposium 2020


The 2020 GMS initially scheduled on May 21-22, 2020 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore has been postponed until later this year due to the COVID-19 situation and current travel bans.

An updated will be provided here once the new dates are confirmed.

The minipig has become a valuable animal model for studying human disease and developing new therapeutic agents and devices. The Göttingen Minipigs Symposium serves as an opportunity for individuals who work with and care for minipigs to gather and discuss new ideas and methods.

The focus for this year's symposium will be on the use of Göttingen Minipigs in biodefense research.

There is no fee to attend the meeting, but registration is required.


Please contact for information about the agenda, venue, and accommodations. Details will be posted here as they become available.

We hope to see you at the next GMS.
