Molecular and Cellular Biology of Helminth Parasites VI

The study of helminth parasites continues to excite great interest across the suite of scientific themes from genomics to immunology. With rapidly increasing sequence information, new drug development for therapy, and intricate host-parasite molecular interactions, we are witnessing a new era of research on these organisms and the diseases they cause. The Conference on Molecular and Cellular Biology of Helminth Parasites will be the sixth in a highly successful series which first started in Edinburgh in 1997, and moved to the island of Hydra, Greece in 2002. All major areas of helminth research are included, in 12 thematic sessions. An important feature of this meeting, is the interface between parasite biologists and investigators from worm model systems such as C. elegans, which is proving highly effective at bringing new blood and fresh perspectives into the field.
