Biochemical Society Meeting: Signalling in protist parasites

  • When:  Friday 9 November 2012
  • Time:  9 am - 6 pm
  • Location:  Charles Darwin House, London, UK

It is estimated that more than half of the human population plus a much greater number of domestic and wild animals suffer from parasitic infections. The magnitude of the problem can be illustrated by estimates of more than 250 million human cases and about 1 million deaths each year from malaria alone.

The meeting will highlight the recent advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that are essential for these parasites life cycle. It will also incorporate the different experimental approaches that can be applied to the study of various protist parasites. The meeting will also demonstrate how biochemical approaches can be applied to reveal novel signalling pathways.
