The 16th BioMalPar Conference on Biology and Pathology of the Malaria Parasite

The 16th BioMalPar Conference on Biology and Pathology of the Malaria Parasite will be held from May 18 - 20, 2020 at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany.

The BioMalPar conference will address fundamental questions of the biology of the malaria parasite, its vector, the immune response of the host, the disease that it causes, and the latest technological approaches. The conference series has built on the success of the EU-funded Networks of Excellence EviMalaR and BioMalPar and, for one and a half decades, has brought together malaria researchers from around the world to present and share recent ground-breaking findings on fundamental malaria research in an integrated and highly collaborative environment. In keeping with the traditions of BioMalPar and EviMalaR, with emphasis on training and networking, the meeting will focus on allowing speaking opportunities for early-stage researchers. 

Session Topics

  • Immunology and vaccine development
  • Epidemiology and surveillance
  • Pathogenesis and host-pathogen interactions
  • "Omics" approaches and evolution
  • Parasite biology
