Parasitic Helminths from Genomes to Vaccines

Edinburgh, 6-9 September 1997

This meeting is the first of what is hoped will be a new series of annual
or biannual research meetings in Edinburgh. "Parasitic Helminths from
Genomes to Vaccines" is intended to fill an important gap in the current
round of regular conferences.

There have been recent major advances in helminth research in the fields of
gene discovery and genomics, biochemistry and physiology (e.g. neurobiology
and receptors), and the immunology of host-parasite interactions. The value
of a helminth-specific meeting (rather than a general parasitology meeting
such as Woods Hole) has been demonstrated by recent Keystone symposia on
Molecular Helminthology. This meeting hopes to make such helminth-specific
gatherings more frequent and more accessible, especially at the student and
postdoc levels.

We hope that there will be a fruitful interaction between researchers from
the C. elegans field and the many branches of molecular, biochemical and
immunological parasitology.
