Drugs Against Protozoan Parasites
Organizer(s): Daniel E. Goldberg, R. Kip Guy and Stephen A. Ward
Date: January 28 - February 01, 2007
Location: Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, CA, USA
Part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
This is a period of rapid progress for the field of anti-protozoal drug development. Genomic efforts have led to the identification of a myriad of new drug targets. Studies on the mechanisms of drug action and drug resistance have yielded new insights into how to improve on old agents. Promising development efforts span the spectrum from lead identification to clinical trials to registration. Key problems include target selection, drug development in an academia-centered environment, and performing trials in endemic areas. This meeting will bring together biologists and chemists with diverse backgrounds and scientists in academia and industry to work together towards solutions to these problems of global importance.
