RSTMH Biennial Meeting - Challenges in Disease Elimination

node lead section
Date and time: 
Monday, 12 September 2016 - 8:00am to Friday, 16 September 2016 - 1:30pm

We are pleased to announce that our 2016 Biennial meeting will take place at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge, Monday 12 – Friday 16 September 2016.

This is now a four and a half day meeting, incorporating the Challenges in Malaria Research meeting previously run by BioMed Central. We have chosen the over-arching theme of disease elimination for this year’s meeting; informed by the outcomes of our policy-focussed meeting in September 2015, we will cover a range of diseases including leprosy, yaws, trachoma, polio, with a focus solely on malaria towards the end of the conference.

Confirmed speakers and session convenors include:

Dr Bruno Moonen, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Dr Roy Vagelos, Retired Chairman and CEO Merck & Co. Inc.

Professor Diana Lockwood, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Professor Sarah Rowland-Jones, University of Oxford

Professor Gail Davey, Brighton and Sussex Medical School

Dr Peter Aaby, Bandim Health Project, Guinea-Bissau

Speaker details and the draft programme can be found on the Challenges in disease Elimination microsite
