This online event provides an innovative platform for Research scientists, immunologists and pharmaceutical professionals involved in basic and translational research related to laboratory diagnostics, including immuno-haematology.
Event Description: Parasitic Infections 2018 is to gathering people in academia and society interested in parasitology to share the latest trends and important issues relevant to our field/subject area. The scientific programme of the event is focused on new molecular and translational advances in parasitic diseases. The event will emphasize the fundamental biology of a wide range of human and veterinarian pathogens that cause malaria, toxoplasmosis, trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, amoebiasis and worm infections. The event will cover a wide range of topics including global impact of parasitic pathogens on human health, genome and gene expression, pathogenesis and host cell remodelling, antigenic variation, metabolic vulnerabilities, parasite to parasite communication. The program will also include translational areas, such as drug development and challenges to effective treatment, drug resistance, immunity and vaccines, as well as discussion about methods of eradication.
Parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host. Infectious Diseases are disorders caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. It may be of water borne, food borne, vector borne, air borne in human beings as well as in plants and animals. The aim of the meeting is to bring together scientists from all over the globe to share and synthesize knowledge to improve the fundamental understanding of these parasites, but also to drive future control and elimination research agendas.
