Microorganisms that can cause disease are collectively called pathogens. These disease causing microorganisms include viruses, bacteria, fungi etc. These pathogens can cause disease either by disrupting the bodies normal processes and/or stimulating the immune system to produce a defensive response, resulting in high fever, inflammation and other symptoms. Infectious diseases can be spread from one person to another, for example through contact with bodily fluids, by aerosols (i.e. through coughing and sneezing), or via a vector, for example a mosquito. This seminar will focus on infection related features of microorganisms and the molecular mechanisms of their pathogenesis. A team of internationally renowned speakers will talk about bacterial protein structure analysis, antimicrobial resistance, immune correlates of viral infections and therapeutic strategies such as identification of antiviral agents and bacterial protein inhibitors.
