Topics in Infection 2015 will be held at the Brunei Gallery SOAS on Friday 23 January 2015.

As always, this meeting (which we organise in association with Public Health England and Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry) will provide an important and valued opportunity for colleagues within all fields of tropical medicine and global health to network, update knowledge and share scientific expertise and will attract over 300 microbiologists, consultants in infectious disease, general physicians, infection control nurses and biomedical and clinical scientists. The 2015 meeting celebrates 40 years of Topics in Infection and to mark this we are inviting some speakers to include a retrospective element in their session, reflecting on what progress has been made, if any, in their disease area, how the current challenges and opportunities compare with those of four decades ago and what the next forty years might bring.


Confirmed sessions include:

  • 'The importance of doing research during outbreaks caused by emerging infections' Professor David Heymann, PHE
  • 'Tackling imported malaria: a forty year perspective' Professor Chris Whitty, LSHTM
  • 'Hepatitis E: a UK and worldwide perspective' Dr Samreen Ijaz, Public Health England
  • 'Malaria: the battle continues' Professor Kevin Marsh, Oxford
  • '30 years of treating HIV: where next?' Dr John Frater, Oxford
  • 'A feasible diagnostic standard for invasive aspergillosis: the quest continues' Dr Samir Agrawal, QMUL and Dr Gemma Johnson, PHE
