Clemson hosting scientists who study devastating diseases
Date:10/24/2013

Clemson University is hosting the region's leading scientists for discussions about the causative agents of some of the most devastating and intractable diseases of humans, including malaria, amoebic dysentery, sleeping sickness, Chagas disease and fungal meningitis.

The Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens Symposium takes place Friday on the Clemson campus and provides an environment for scientific discussions centered on current research projects involving eukaryotic pathogens.

"This daylong meeting will offer valuable insight and encourage collaboration among researchers of all levels of expertise from both Clemson's Eukaryotic Pathogen Innovation Center and the University of Georgia's Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases," said James Morris, professor in Clemson's Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center and department of genetics and biochemistry.

This symposium will include presentations by leading researchers, a poster session and a keynote presentation by John Perfect, James B. Duke Professor in Duke University's department of medicine, chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and director of the Mycology Research Unit.

The Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens Symposium is organized and funded by American Society for Cell Biology, Clemson University Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center, University of Georgia Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases, Clemson University genetics and biochemistry department and the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences.
