Le prochain Trypanosomatid Parasites Meeting débutera le lundi 28 octobre à 9h30 et se poursuivra jusqu'au mardi 29 octobre à 16h30.  

Afin de couvrir un large panel de sujets de recherche, un total de 6 sessions est prévu. Chaque session comprendra la présentation d'un orateur invité, suivie de quatre présentations choisies sur résumés:
- Épidémiologie, santé publique et épistémologie: Marleen BOELAERT (ITM, Anvers, Belgique)
- Diagnostic, développement de médicaments et de vaccins: Veerle LEJON (IRD, Montpellier, France)
- Ecologie et entomologie médicale: Steve TOR (LSTM, Liverpool, UK)
- Immunologie et physiologie: Guy CALJON (Université d’Anvers, Belgique)
- Biologie cellulaire et métabolisme: Dolorez GONZALEZ PACANOWSKA (Institut de Parasitologie et Biomédecine, Grenade, Espagne)
- Génétique et évolution: Virginie ROUGERON (IRD, Montpellier, France)  

En plus de ces sessions de présentations, une session posters aura lieu lundi en fin d’après-midi lors d’un cocktail. Comme pour les précédentes éditions, le diner de conférence sera organisé dans un restaurant parisien.  

Cette 6ème édition bénéficie du soutien financier direct de Sanofi et de l'Institut Pasteur pour l'organisation. Grâce aux sponsors, l’inscription est gratuite et inclut un accès complet à toutes les sessions de la conférence, aux pauses café, aux déjeuners et au cocktail offert pendant la session posters. Seul le dîner de la conférence sera facturé aux participants. Cependant, l'inscription est obligatoire.  

Les doctorants et post-doctorants sont vivement encouragés à présenter leurs travaux récents à la communauté. Un programme détaillé de l'événement sera disponible début octobre 2019.  

Cette édition promet de passionnantes discussions scientifiques sur des sujets d'actualité. N'oubliez pas de vous inscrire avant le 30 septembre 2019 sur https://www.eventbrite.com/e/trypanosomatid-parasites-meeting-vi-from-the-lab-to-the-field-tickets-50864283441

6thTrypanosomatidParasitesMeeting

Eukaryome 2019

The Institut Pasteur is holding the meeting "Eukaryome impact on Intestine homeostasis and mucosal immunology" in Paris, France - October 16 to 18,2019. The conferences will address the following topics: 

- Phylogenetic, prevalence, and diversity of intestinal eukaryotic microbes; and their (still enigmatic) historical evolution and potential contributions to mucosal immune homeostasis.
- Integrative biology to study the molecular cell biology of parasite-host interactions and the multiple parameters underlining the infectious process.
- The exploitation of tissue engineering and microfluidics to establish three-dimensional (3D) systems that help to understand homeostasis and pathological processes in the human intestine.

A large panel of experts is engaged in this event. The organizing committee would be happy to welcome you to Paris, France for this exciting meeting.  

You can find all the informations on the following website:  http://www.eukaryome2019.conferences-pasteur.org/

Deadline for registration : until maximum capacity is reached

Deadline for abstracts submission  : August 26, 2019 (10 short talks will be selected among the abstracts submitted)

The European Medicines Agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has adopted a positive scientific opinion of fexinidazole, the first all-oral treatment that has been shown to be Fexinidazole162018 1024x683
efficacious for both stages of sleeping sickness. This approval is a result of clinical trials led by the non-profit research and development organization DNDi and an application submitted by Sanofi. The decision paves the way for the distribution of fexinidazole in endemic countries in 2019.
