Molecular & Cellular Biology of Helminth Parasites VII

The 2012 Hydra conference (2 -7 September 2012) was another exciting and enjoyable event, with landmark presentations across the whole field of molecular and cellular helminth research. Delegates came from around the globe - Australia, New Zealand, China, India, South Africa and South America as well as North American and Europe; three younger scientists from China, South Africa and Uruguay received Travelling fellowships through funds generously donated by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. Our invited speakers, David Bird, Paul Sternberg, Raffi Aroian, David Artis and Alex Loukas all gave great presentations, and their attendance was facilitated by generous funding from Experimental Parasitology (Elsevier Journals). Overall there were more than 50 talks from leading scientists in the field and around 40 posters. Thanks to all those who presented data, participated in the discussions and contributed to a memorable meeting!
