The West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP) will hold its seventh annual research conference from July 26-28, 2023. The theme for this year’s conference is “Innovative Research for Sustainable Impact.”
WACCBIP is a leading research center in Africa dedicated to the study of infectious diseases. The center was established in 2008 by the University of Ghana, with support from the Wellcome Trust. WACCBIP has made significant contributions to the understanding of infectious diseases, including malaria.
The WACCBIP Research Conference is a major event in the African scientific community. The conference brings together leading scientists from around the world to share their research on infectious diseases. The conference also provides a platform for networking and collaboration between scientists.
This year’s conference will feature presentations on a wide range of topics related to infectious diseases. Topics will include:
- Immune responses and disease pathogenesis
- Molecular diagnostics and assay development
- Drug discovery
- Host-pathogen interactions
- SARS-CoV-2, emerging and re-emerging pathogens
- Molecular epidemiology for enhanced surveillance and epidemic preparedness
- Human genetics and non-communicable diseases
Abstracts for presentations are now being accepted. Abstracts should be no more than 350 words in length and should be submitted by May 31, 2023.
The WACCBIP Research Conference is an important opportunity to showcase the work of African scientists and to advance the fight against infectious diseases.
