DAY MEETING Thursday 28 September 2017

The 2017 BSP Autumn Symposium will be organised by Prof Russell Stothard FLS (LSTM) and Dr Bonnie Webster FLS (NHM).

The meeting’s aim will be to explore and broadly discuss recent progress towards understanding host-parasite relationships, with a particular emphasis on vectors and intermediate hosts of human diseases. The meeting will also be a convenient opportunity to develop a festschrift in Parasitology, in honour of Prof David Rollinson (former President of the BSP), marking over forty years of parasitological research.

This day meeting will formally commence at 10:30 with a combination of talks from invited speakers along with presentations selected from abstracts. There will be an open poster session, with each poster having a 1-min speed talk to encourage later discussions during the lunchtime and evening drinks receptions in the magnificent library of the Linnean Society.

After the evening reception, to take discussions further there will be a speakers’ dinner, open to all by ticket, at the Kings Head, Mayfair. Invited speakers will include: Prof Sir Roy Anderson, Prof Santiago Mas-Coma, Prof Juerg Utzinger, Prof Jozef Vercruysse, Prof Louis-Albert Tchuem-Tchuente, Prof Joanne Webster and Prof Tim Anderson.
