The Galleria mellonella Workshop (GmW)
Two Days of Powerful Talks, Frascati, Italy, 15th – 17th May 2020
This two-day residential meeting set in the beautiful town of Frascati, Italy, will bring together users of, and those interested in using, the model host Galleria mellonella, for an unparalleled opportunity to learn from, be inspired by and network with the international research community.
G. mellonella larvae can be used as an economical, rapid, high-throughput model to bridge the gap between in vitro studies and mammalian research, thus improving preclinical studies and reducing the number of mammals used in drug testing. G. mellonella larvae have been widely used over the past few years as non-mammalian models of microbial infection and for antimicrobial drug screening. This is particularly relevant as NC3Rs have announced their research highlight for 2019: the use of alternative research models such as G. mellonella.
This conference is aimed at researchers form academia, the public sector and industry. The workshop sessions will highlight the wide range of applications for G. mellonella and delegates will have ample opportunity to discuss best practice, learn first hand about cutting edge research, and to network with the Galleria research community.
