Malaria in Melbourne

Malaria in Melbourne (MiM) returns in October 2017 to bring together malaria scientists from Melbourne and around Australia, including a number of Burnet Institute researchers and students.

Session topics will comprise immunology, epidemiology, vaccines, drug discovery and molecular and cellular parasitology.

The program will include a plenary session by keynote speaker, Professor Jean Langhorne, head of the Malaria Immunology laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute, London, UK, and 35 oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts and distributed in seven sessions.

There will be presentations from Burnet’s Dr Ricardo Ataide, Dr Gaoqian Feng and Dr Vashti Irani, while poster sessions will provide additional opportunities for the presentation of results and discussion of ideas.

Burnet postdoctoral scientist Dr Herbert Opi is a member of the MiM organising committee.

MiM is focused on Australia’s next generation of researchers, giving them the opportunity to present their work and provide a forum to begin new collaborations.
