Organizer(s): B. Brett Finlay, Alan Cowman, Stephen Hughes, Sumalee Kamchonwongpaisan, Valerie Mizrahi and Philippe J. SansonettiDate: October 22 - 27, 2008
Location: Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand
This meeting will review the most recent developments in the molecular and cellular analysis of infectious disease processes, and how discoveries in this field can be translated into innovative tools (i.e. diagnostic assays, new drugs, vaccines and other therapeutics) for better surveillance and control. Emphasis will be on the neglected infectious and parasitic diseases that plague the developing world (with lessons taken from better studied organisms), and on issues such as drug resistance that are common themes, regardless of geographic and economic situations.
