MAM2016 Conference

Burnet’s Dr Freya Fowkes and Dr Paul Gilson will be taking part in the fifth Molecular Approaches to Malaria Conference, MAM2016, from 21–25 February 2016 at Mantra Beach Resort in Lorne, Australia.

MAM2016 will highlight the latest molecular advances in our understanding of host cell invasion, virulence mechanisms, immunity and pathogenesis, drug resistance, drug and vaccine approaches, population biology, transmission and epidemiology.

The central goal of the conference is to provide new insights into the science, technologies and novel tools required to combat malaria.

A member of the MAM2016 organising committee, Dr Fowkes will chair a ‘Short Talks’ session, while Dr Gilson will present “Identification of novel new permeation pathway inhibitors in the blood stage of Plasmodium falciparum.”

MAM2016 will feature leading experts in the field while providing opportunities for young researchers and scientists from malaria endemic countries to showcase their research through selected talks and posters from submitted abstracts.
