CTEGD symposium

Registration is open until April 27 for the 26th annual Molecular Parasitology/Vector Biology Symposium which will be held May 3 at the Georgia Center.

This daylong regional conference, hosted by UGA’s Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases, on parasites and host/parasite interaction routinely draws more than 120 attendees from many departments in at least four different colleges or schools at UGA as well as colleagues from other institutions in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee.

John Boothroyd from the Stanford University School of Medicine will be the keynote speaker. His research focuses on the pathogenesis of parasitic infections, most notably Toxoplasma gondii.

Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and other researchers are invited to present their research in either an oral or poster presentation. Abstracts for these presentations are due by April 11.

There is no cost to attend the symposium or the full catered lunch, but registration is required.
