10 June 2022 Pathogens Webinar | Blood Parasites in Asia: Trends, Problems and Solutions


Blood parasites tremendously affect humans and animals causing morbidity, mortality, welfare issues and can be transmitted as zoonosis through arthropod vectors, which themselves create their own burden for millions of lives having huge social and economic impacts. Furthermore, multiple infections make diagnosis and treatments more challenging and many blood parasites have counter-reacted to host immune defense and attack mechanisms. Some parasites are developing resistance to drugs or evolved to mutate and survive in their host.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Prof. Dr. Olivier Sparagano, Department of Public Health and Infectious Diseases, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR
  • Dr. Lydia R. Leonardo, Office of the Research Coordination, University of the East, Institute of Biology, College of Science, University of the Philippines Diliman, Department of Biology, College of Arts and Sciences, University of the Philippines Manila, College of Public Health, University of the Philippines Manila, Graduate School,  University of the East Ramon Magsaysay
  • Prof. Dr. Arve Lee Willingham, Chair, Department of Veterinary Medicine, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, United Arab Emirates University, Al Ain, Abu Dhabi Emirate, United Arab Emirates

When? 10 June 2022 at 10:00am CEST | 5:00am EDT | 5:00pm CST Asia

9–10 July 2022 The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Microbial Toxins and Pathogenicity

Waterville Valley, NH, USA

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Microbial Toxins and Pathogenicity is a unique and premier forum for intellectual exchange between graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other trainees in the microbial pathogenesis field. Microbiologists with comparable levels of experience and education will present new and unpublished research at the forefront of the discipline. This meeting will highlight cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research on molecular interactions between pathogens and the human host, as well as interactions between pathogens and other microorganisms in the context of disease. The conference will be held on 9-10 July 2022 at Waterville Valley, NH, US. More information could be found at

16–17 July 2022 The Gordon Research Seminar on Microbial Stress Response

Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA, USA

The Gordon Research Seminar on Microbial Stress Response is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Our goal is to bring together early-career scientists in a highly stimulating environment to present their current research, learn about career options, and build informal networks with others interested in how bacteria adapt in response to stress.

5–7 October 2022 ApicoWplexa 2022: 6th International Conference on Apicomplexan Parasites in Farm Animals

Bern, Switzerland

ApicoWplexa 2022 will serve as a forum for participants with an inherent interest in apicomplexan parasites in livestock and provide an excellent opportunity for networking and scientific exchange. It will cover a range of apicomplexan parasites, which are responsible for important diseases that affect the health and productivity of farm as well as companion animals, game, and wild animals, and in some instances, also human health. The beautiful city of Bern is the capital of Switzerland and is in close vicinity to highly attractive holiday destinations in the Swiss mountains. Please check for additional information.

24–28 October 2022 The 20th International Congress for Tropical Medicine and Malaria

Bangkok, Thailand

The 20th International Congress for Tropical Medicine and Malaria or ICTMM 2020 is one of the largest tropical medicine conferences in the world, bringing together thousands of researchers, experts, policymakers, stakeholders, and international authorities in the field of tropical medicine and malaria. ICTMM 2020 will be held on 24–28 October 2022 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Thailand.
