The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Federation of Infection Societies Conference, 2018
Dates: 13-15 Nov 2018
Location: Newcastle, UK
This meeting is the premier infection conference of the UK and delegates from all disciplines of laboratory, preventive and clinical medicine within the spheres of infectious diseases, microbiology, infection prevention and tropical/travel medicine attend. Here the most important issues facing modern infection practice are discussed and debated, and FIS 2018 is bringing together some of the best and most thoughtful minds from around in the world to inform and participate.
Topics covered over an exciting and challenging three days include the numerous threats posed to humanity by anti-microbial resistance, HIV, viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, outbreaks in serious emerging infections, tropical and travel medicine. There are also sessions on paediatric infectious diseases and an update on current infection-related NICE guidelines.
Our aim is that the conference will enjoy input from clinical scientists working in the laboratory and clinicians who deal with adult and paediatric patients at the “clinical coal face” on a regular basis.
