Second Symposium in Integrative Biology of Emerging Infectious Diseases (LabEx IBEID)
The second workshop of the Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) in Integrative Biology of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IBEID) will take place in Paris, France, on September 22nd 2015 in the Institut Pasteur.
The LabEx IBEID addresses the topic of emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases in its most challenging aspects: conditions and anticipation of occurrence and transmission, quick identification of etiological agents, molecular mechanisms of infection, bases of the crossing of species barriers, mechanisms of resistance, bases of host and, individual variation in susceptibility.
This last year has witnessed a number of significant viral threats, continued sporadic cases of MERS coronavirus infections imported into countries around the world, the massive expansion of the Chikungunya epidemic across South and North America, the Ebola crisis in west African countries.
This year, the IBEID Workshop will re-examine these recent challenges through keynote lectures that will cover the lessons learned during outbreak intervention, the epidemiology and dynamics of these recent epidemics, and the biological and ecological aspects of these diseases and their vectors and hosts.
