7–10 August 2017 10th International Conference on the Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of the Clostridia
Ann Arbor, Michigan, the United States
The International Conferences on the Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis of the Clostridia (Clostpath) have been a leading venue to bring together clinicians and scientists for forefront research on the molecular biology of clostridia and their role in health and disease. Clostpath 10 will cover all aspects of clostridia-dependent pathogenesis, regulation of virulence factors, host-pathogen interactions, structure and mode of actions of clostridial toxins, development of new genetic tools as well as epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of clostridia-caused diseases. The scientific program of Clostpath 10 will include keynote lectures by internationally recognized leaders in clostridial research and clinical practice. In addition to state-of-the-art invited talks about the most recent and exciting discoveries in the field, short oral contributions will be selected from submitted abstracts. Lively poster presentations will give the opportunity for attendees to discuss their ongoing work with a broad audience in line with the goal to bring together basic science with clinical and translational research issues.
