The Microbial Pathogenesis Conference: Mechanisms of Infectious Disease
The conference brings together experts in all fields of infectious diseases, from students to senior investigators, to foster interdisciplinary approaches to understand and combat pathogenic microbes.
The conference explores topics including: (1) Molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis; (2) Understanding and strengthening host responses to infectious agents; (3) Novel approaches to drug discovery.
Conference sessions are organized by theme and cross organismal lines, including:
- Immune responses to pathogens
- Virulence mechanisms
- Microbial genomics
- Nutritional immunity
- Modulation of immune responses by pathogens
- Alternative models for infections
- Drug discovery and development
