Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, multi-drug resistant bacteria, dengue and pandemic influenza are global threats to public health. Communication between researchers with expertise in infectious agents, anti-infectives and host immune responses is key to successfully combat any infectious disease. Through joint symposia and collaborations, NUS and Nagasaki University have maintained a long term scientific relationship that has benefited both sides.
This year, the NUS Department of Microbiology & Immunology and Medical Science Cluster (MSC) Infectious Disease (ID) program welcome the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) as a new partner to proudly co-host the 14th NUS-Nagasaki-LSHTM Joint Symposium. The Joint Symposium will provide a unique platform for researchers at various stages of their career to share their current and cutting-edge findings on microbial pathogenesis, anti-microbial strategies, and host immunity.
