Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene: Topics in Infection meeting

In association with Public Health England and Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, RSTMH is organising Topics in Infection again this year.  

We have a limited number of places remaining for what we are sure will be a fascinating and valuable meeting.  As always, this meeting will provide an important and valued opportunity for colleagues within all fields of tropical medicine and global health to network, update knowledge and share scientific expertise and will attract over 300 microbiologists, consultants in infectious disease, general physicians, infection control nurses and biomedical and clinical scientists.

The full programme is now available here and features the following speakers and sessions:

  • Infections in the bush - Matthew Dryden, Royal Hampshire County Hospital
  • Schistosomiasis: three decades of trying to develop diagnostic tests - Mike Doenhoff, University of Nottingham
  • Infections in the backstreet - Nick Gent, Public Health England
  • Typhoid in the 21st century - Jayshree Dave, Public Health England
  • Carbapenem-resistant organisms: not shy and retiring - John Philpott-Howard, King's College London
  • Does the C. difficile target regime create perverse incentives? - Albert Mifsud, Whipps Cross University Hospital
  • Proportionate responses to the emergence of rat-borne hantavirus infection in the UK - Noel McCarthy, Public Health England
  • Tick-borne relapsing fever: a neglected NTD - Ed Cartwright, University of Cambridge
