Understanding the survival strategies and underlying interspecies interactions between pathogen and host offers a unique insight in the fundaments of their biology, leading to the development of new tools to cure or control infectious diseases.

Our objectives?
  • Provide an update and new angles on research into host-pathogen relationships and their consequences for science and medicine.
  • Promote interdisciplinary and cross-thematic interaction between scientists working on different pathogen models and disciplines.
  • Translate basic research on the host-pathogen models in new approaches to cure and control infectious diseases.
  • Create a platform for novel collaborative links between scientists across the world and across disciplines.
