Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Molecular Pathogenesis: Mechanisms of Infectious Disease (2017)

Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Molecular Pathogenesis: Mechanisms of Infectious Disease (2017)

Since 1994, this Biennial FASEB Science Research Conference has been devoted to exciting and groundbreaking research on viral, bacterial, fungal, and protozoal pathogens. The combined themes are particularly pertinent as we now know that regardless of their taxonomic differences, microbes confront similar barriers from the host innate and acquired immune systems, thus indicating both similar and unique virulence strategies. As such, this is the only long-standing specialized international conference that regularly attracts virologists, bacteriologists, mycologists, parasitologists, immunologists, antimicrobial researchers, and translational scientists. Notable speakers include – but are certainly not limited to – Gordon Dougan, Kim Orth, Vern Carruthers, Erica Ollman Saphire, Gerry Wright, Vanessa Sperandio, Jim Kronstad, and many others.  In 2017, the program will include sessions on diverse aspects of host-microbe interactions from molecular, evolutionary, immunological, and therapeutic perspectives. 

Program Highlights:

  • Sessions on diverse aspects of host-microbe interactions from molecular, evolutionary, immunological, and therapeutic perspectives
  • Talks will include new, state-of-the-art approaches as well as how to adapt traditional approaches to meet today’s challenges.
  • Three poster sessions, a formal career development session the final morning of the conference, free time in the afternoon, and ‘meet the speaker’ lunch tables 
These highlights in addition to the relatively small size of the meeting, the diversity of fields, and the many structured and informal interaction opportunities make this an ideal meeting for young scientists to meet established investigators to develop networks of support that will foster career development.
