You are cordially invited to attend the 10th International Symposium on Bordetella to be held 8-11 September 2013 at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
The meeting is the tenth in a series of international symposia on pertussis, expanded in 2006 to include all Bordetellae.
A major goal of the meeting will be to promote interactions between scientists, performing cutting-edge basic research on the genetics, biology, pathogenesis and immunology of Bordetellae with those working on epidemiology and clinical aspects of pertussis, with an aim of understanding and responding to the resurgence of whooping cough in children and adults.
Topics to be covered at this meeting will include:
Genomics and Evolution of Bordetellae
Mechanisms of Pathogenesis
Immunity to Bordetella Infection
Epidemiology, Control and Diagnosis of Bordetellae
Infant Mortality and Morbidity
Current and Future Pertussis Vaccines
