The Eighth Annual BioMalPar Conference will take place from 14 to 16 May 2012 in Heidelberg, Germany.

Malaria ranks among the major health and developmental challenges for the poor countries of the world. Half century ago, it was eliminated or effectively suppressed in many parts of the world, particularly subtropical regions. The disease is now on the rise again; since it is appearing in areas where it had disappeared, leading to it being classified by some as a re-emerging disease.

The scientific aims will 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.

The event is intended to be a forum for researchers from Europe and overseas (including Africa, America, Asia and Australia) in order to present and share recent groundbreaking findings on fundamental malaria research. Session topics will include:
- immunobiology and pathophysiology;
- parasite molecular and cell biology;
- vector parasite interactions;
- modelling and systems biology.For further information, please visit: http://www.embl.de/training/events/2012/BMP12-01/index.html
