Challenges in Malaria Research, 2014

Challenges in Malaria Research 

BioMed Central, in conjunction with its journals Malaria Journal and Parasites & Vectors, is hosting the third malaria conference “Challenges in Malaria Research: Core science and innovation” in Oxford, UK from 22-24 September 2014.

It follows the success of our previous malaria conferences in Edinburgh in 2010 and Basel in 2012. This third biennial conference will bring together leading malaria researchers to review current progress and to chart future challenges, this time with a greater emphasis on basic science.

Internationally renowned speakers will present their insights into core science and innovation in malaria research – including Plasmodium vivax epidemiology; trends and impacts; G6PD deficiency; vaccines; genome mapping and molecular epidemiology; new clues for drug development; mathematical modelling; cutting edge in cell biology; new issues in clinical malaria and pathology; and a special session on vectors in memory of Mario Coluzzi.

• All participants are invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations

• Highly topical scientific programme

• Internationally renowned invited speakers and organizing committee

• Technology showcase: presentations of cutting-edge research by state-of-the-art technologies
