Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria (Virtual Conference)

7 June, 2021 - 9 June, 2021

General Information

We are pleased to announce the 8th Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria conference. This multidisciplinary meeting provides a forum for malaria scientists and clinicians focused on understanding the clinical and biological consequences of genome variation in malaria-exposed populations. The conference will bring researchers from across the globe working on various aspects of human, parasite and mosquito genetics together to focus on how new biological insights can be used to control malaria.

This year’s conference will focus on our current understanding of transmission models and migration patterns, genomic surveillance and the implications for policies to eradicate malaria. We will also explore resistance to malaria drugs and insecticides, and provide a forum to discuss biological insights from recent advances in malaria genetics.

Topics will include:

  • Spatial epidemiology
  • Drug resistance
  • Insecticide resistance
  • Transmission
  • Bioinformatics tools for 21st century
  • Biological insights from genomes
  • Genomic surveillance for elimination
  • Barriers to translation

Deadline for abstract submission: 12 April 2021
