- Drug Discovery for Parasitic Diseases
January 24-28, 2016, Tahoe City, USA
This conference will be showcasing anti-parasitic drug discovery programs that illustrate the path from parasite biology to lead identification and from optimization to candidate selection. It will be emphasizing the need for coordinated integration of programs in medicinal chemistry, parasite biology, pharmacokinetics, and safety assessment. It will also be featuring emerging technologies such as chemical biology, chemoproteomics, chemical informatics, genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics that are facilitating drug discovery. Moreover, it will be discussing the current status of anti-parasitic drug resistance and advances in the understanding of mechanisms of resistance.
- Molecular Approaches to Malaria (MAM)
February 21-25, 2016, Lorne, Australia
MAM 2016 will highlight the latest molecular advances in our understanding of host cell invasion, virulence mechanisms, immunity and pathogenesis, drug resistance, drug and vaccine approaches, population biology, transmission, and epidemiology. The meeting will focus on multiple Plasmodium species including Plasmodium vivax and its latent stage in the liver as well as host-parasite interactions in both human and the mosquito vector. The central goal of the meeting is to provide new insights into the science, technologies, and novel tools required to combat malaria. MAM 2016 will feature leading experts in the field while maintaining ample opportunities for young researchers and scientists from malaria endemic countries to showcase their research through selected talks and posters from submitted abstracts.
- 27 th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Parasitology
March 9-12, 2016, University of Göttingen (Germany)
The scientific program of the conference would reflect the different disciplines that cover the field of parasitology. Both the basic biology of parasites as well as applied, translational research will be represented within the conference. Plenary sessions, thematic workshops, and oral/poster presentations are organized to encourage young parasitologists to present their latest results to a wider audience and to exchange ideas.
- Malaria Vaccines for the World (MVW) 2016
May 2-4, 2016, Leiden, The Netherlands
MVW 2016 conference will deal with the different aspects of vaccine development, assessment, and deployment, as well as funding and regulatory aspects of vaccine implementation and testing. The conference will also be highlighting research on the use of animal models and (controlled) clinical trials to study the immunological basis of protection and to identify novel candidate vaccine antigens.
- Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria
June 5-8, 2016, Cambridge, The UK
This meeting will provide a common forum for malaria scientists and clinicians working at the interface of genome science and technology, epidemiology, and statistical and population genetics, with an interest in understanding the clinical and biological consequences of genome variation in malaria-exposed populations. It will also explore the genomic epidemiology of the host, vector, and parasite, highlighting the practical relevance to malaria control and elimination, including anti-malarial drug resistance, insecticide resistance, vaccine design, epidemiological modeling, and mechanisms of protective immunity.
- Parasitic Infection 2016
June 28-30, 2016, London, The UK
Over 3 days, this international meet will be covering various discoveries relating to diagnosis, treatment, and drug design. Parasitic infections including malaria and neglected diseases, such as trypanosomiasis, will be discussed in detail, as well as discussion about the methods of eradication.
- XII European Multicolloquium of Parasitology (EMOP XII)
July 20-24, 2016, Turku, Finland
The theme of the conference is "Parasites are Forever" and it points both to the history as well as to the future of parasitology. The conference will be presenting a comprehensive package of the contemporary research trends in parasitology, with special emphasis on the One Health concept - from the parasitic point of view. Other focus areas of the conference will include, for example, food and waterborne parasites, paleoparasitology, GIS, and exotic Arctic parasitology. EMOP will be a colloquium, open to all parasites.
- 2 nd International Conference on Parasitology
August 01-03, 2016, Manchester, The UK
The 2 nd International Conference on Parasitology is organized around the theme "Addressing New Challenges and Emerging Issues in Parasitology." This conference comprises 21 tracks and 82 sessions designed to offer comprehensive sessions that address the current issues in Parasitology.
- 19 th XIX International Congress for Tropical Medicine and Malaria (ICTMM 2016)
September 18-22, 2016, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia
The program will be covering the major infectious diseases prevalent in the tropics, including malaria and other parasite infections, bacterial infections such as typhoid and tuberculosis, and viral infections such as HIV and dengue fever. In addition social, cultural, and economic aspects of health relevant to the tropics will be covered.
- 1 st CYSTINET international conference: Taeniasis and cysticercosis: A one health challenge.
November 03-04, 2015, Belgrade, Serbia
The main objective of this conference is to advance knowledge and understanding of the Taenia solium (pork tapeworm) and Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm) cysticercosis/taeniasis zoonotic disease complexes.
In line with the One Health concept, the 1 st CYSTINET International Conference will intend to bring together experts on these diseases from Europe and beyond, from the medical and veterinary fields as well as environment, sanitation, etc., and provide a singular forum for the exchange of knowledge, data, and ideas.
