The International Filariasis Meeting (IFM 2014) is focused on new concepts and approaches in the study of filariasis, their diversity and those of their endosymbiotic bacteria Wolbachia, and their interaction with vertebrate hosts and arthropod vectors. The program will feature a wide range of topics, such as filarial diversity, host and parasite co-evolution, filarial developmental biology, pathogenesis, host invasion, transmission, metabolic interaction, immune response, drug action and resistance, and vaccination.
The Conference will bring together investigators who are at the forefront of their field, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to get together and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. This conference is intended to provide a unique format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and set future research agendas in a collegial atmospher.
