Our 52nd BSP Spring meeting, including the biennial Trypanosomiasis and Leishmaniasis symposium, will take place at the University of Cambridge, and looks set to be an exciting and popular conference.
A major annual international meeting, uniting all aspects of parasitology, spanning identification of new therapeutic modalities, genomics, disease mechanisms, control strategies, basic organismal biology, evolution and more.
The meeting aims to provide opportunities for leading scientists, postdoctoral researchers and students from all disciplines that impact parasitology to exchange ideas, to cross disciplines and to network.
Each session will feature an invited speaker, but with ample scope for short talks and poster presentations selected from the submitted abstracts.
Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is the seventh oldest university in the world, maintaining a global reputation for excellence in education and research. Located in the Fenlands to the east of England, the University boasts some of the finest medieval architecture in the world, a rich cultural heritage and research with global impact.
A full social program is also planned.
Registration opens in early 2014.
Details as they emerge will be available at the BSP website
We hope that you will consider this major meeting for your 2014 diary.
