EMBO Conference on Mosquitoes and Other Disease Vectors


Molecular and population biology of mosquitoes and other disease vectors

Current, resurgent and emerging diseases

24 – 29 July 2015 | Kolymbari, Greece

Mosquitoes and other blood-feeding arthropods are vectors of parasitic and viral diseases that combined have a tremendous human impact, killing over one million people every year. The lack of effective preventions and the complexity of the disease lifecycles require integrated approaches that target the transmission systems rather than the pathogens alone. This biennial conference series was initiated in 2003 to create a forum for dissemination of novel and unpublished data. The conference is now a tradition and is widely regarded as a key event for the vector community. The highlight of the current EMBO Conference is the impact of environmental and climate change on the emergence and resurgence of vector borne diseases. This topic will be introduced in the opening plenary session and be the focus of one of the nine scientific sessions.
