BioMed Central presents Challenges in Malaria Research: Progress Towards Elimination
Date:8/9/2012

In conjunction with its journals Malaria Journal and Parasites and Vectors, the open access publisher BioMed Central is proud to present its second malaria conference, "Challenges in Malaria Research: Progress towards elimination" at the University of Basel, Switzerland from 10-12 October 2012.

With steps being made towards better control of malaria, this conference focuses on the eventual goal of eradication. Although malaria elimination is currently a possibility in some regions, worldwide elimination is a much bigger challenge that will require further research and progress in many areas relevant to the transmission of the disease. Each of the 10 conference sessions will deal with different aspects of research for elimination with the aim of bringing different disciplines together to generate new tools and strategies for fighting malaria.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Pedro Alonso, Barcelona Centre for International Health Research (CRESIB), Spain
  • Simon Hay, University of Oxford, UK
  • Robert Newman, Global Malaria Programme WHO, Geneva, Switzerland
  • Nicholas J. White, University of Oxford, UK & Mahidol University, Thailand
  • Teun Bousema, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK
Professor Marcel Tanner from the Swiss Tropical & Public Health Institute, Basel, and co-chair of the conference Organizing Committee said "This meeting maintains the momentum towards malaria elimination/eradication through the presentation and discussion of innovative science to be applied in the different malaria endemic areas."
