The European Network of Excellence BioMalPar is organising its sixth annual conference on the Biology and Pathology of the Malaria Parasite. BioMalPar consists of 50 partner laboratories in 24 institutions from 8 European countries and from 6 malaria endemic countries (Mali, Sudan, Uganda, Nigeria, Cameroon and India). It also comprises 12 European affiliated partners.

Created in April 2004, BioMalPar was established with the vision of forming a European-wide virtual institute, enhancing cohesion between its component research groups.

The scientific aims of the network are to address, in an integrated, collaborative manner, fundamental questions of the biology of the malaria parasite, its vector, and the disease, allowing optimal exploitation of the resulting knowledge to impact on public health.

BioMalPar places a particular emphasis on its training role, and has established a high profile PhD scholarship. BioMalPar aims also to ensure a broad dissemination of research results and enhance the public awareness through the implementation of a website, and the organisation of annual conferences, training courses and meetings.

The purpose of the BioMalPar annual conference is to bring together malaria researchers from Europe and overseas (including Africa, America, Asia and Australia) in order to present and share recent groundbreaking findings on fundamental malaria research. New insights will also be featured through the use of poster sessions. This meeting will also provide an enriched environment for researchers at all stages of their career to interact with international leaders in the field. The meeting will offer an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas and for potential development of new worldwide collaborations.

Registration will open soon.
