This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually.

 

Conference Overview

Malaria remains a major global public health challenge. The emergence and spread of resistance to existing antimalarial drugs further complicates the fight against this ancient foe.

As the BioMalPar Conference marks its 20th anniversary, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the critical mission of understanding the biology of the Plasmodium parasite, its interactions with hosts and vectors, and the urgent need to develop effective intervention strategies.

This year, we will focus on enhancing our research community by forging new connections. We recognize that meaningful progress in combating malaria necessitates collaboration across continents and disciplines—sharing data and employing state-of-the-art techniques to unravel Plasmodium’s secrets.

The upcoming conference is a pivotal opportunity for global scientists to convene, fostering the exchange of vital information, cutting-edge technology, and innovative ideas, all crucial to advancing our collective battle against malaria.
