Setting our sights on infectious diseases

12 May 2019 15:00 - 15 May 2019 16:00, Dundee, United Kingdom


Introduction
The Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research  first conference aims to harness cross-disciplinary and cross-disease learning to accelerate drug discovery and reduce drug candidate attrition rates for infectious diseases affecting low and middle income countries. Conference attendees will take home new ideas and technologies which have been demonstrated to work; applying them to diseases where challenges to drug discovery are hampering progress.

The conference has been formatted to allow active participation of all conference delegates. Each session will feature talks from internationally recognised experts followed by a panel discussion providing the opportunity for the audience to discuss the issues raised with the speakers. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities through poster sessions and evening social events.

The organising committee encourage researchers working within disease endemic countries to attend and bring their first-hand knowledge of the impact of infectious diseases to the discussions. 20 travel bursaries worth up to £1,500 are available to those coming from low and middle income countries to assist with the costs of attending the conference.

Further information on registration, travel bursaries and abstract submission can be found on the conference website
