The interest and the increasing need for communication, exchange of experience and materials, and training in diagnostics and research methods has led to the idea of creating an international scientific society focusing on Tularemia.

Under the umbrella and with active participation of WHO, a group of scientists has met twice in Berlin at the Robert Koch-Institut in 2008/2009 to develop this idea. Finally, the 6th International Conference on Tularemia which was held at Charité, Berlin, from 13 to 16 September 2009 was used to establish the a non-profit organisation: TULAREMIA INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY - with the abbreviations TULISOC.

TULISOC intends to:

  • facilitate and encourage the assembly, acquaintance and association of scientists from all geographical regions engaged in tularaemia research;
  • foster and encourage discussion and dissemination of the results of research and related matters of interest in this field;
  • provide a means to convene appropriate specialists that will serve as a ready resource in the case of specific needs and emergencies;
  • promote awareness of the field and of the implications of the research findings;
  • promote education and training in the field.
