Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Meeting
Meeting Date: Sunday, April 21 - Thursday, April 25, 2013
Registration and Abstract Deadline: Sunday, February 17, 2013
KMCBM 2013 Abstract Book
The biennial KMCB Meeting provides a forum for discussion of the Molecular Cell Biology of Trypanosomes, Leishmania, and related model organisms, without restrictions on attendance. Researchers whose primary focus is on pathogenesis and drug development are also welcome. Presentations (talks and posters) of research-in-progress by young investigators are strongly encouraged, but the program will also feature overview talks by senior investigators, to respond to the often-heard complaint of students and postdocs that they rarely hear senior investigators discuss their work within a broader framework, which generally happens in the context of smaller invitation-only meetings. Overview speakers will be invited from among those who register to attend the meeting, with regard to the need for representative coverage of topics at current, recent, and future meetings. There will be no concurrent sessions. Any suggestions for coverage of specific topics in a workshop or panel format will be welcomed.
The meeting will commence with registration on the afternoon of Sunday April 21, with dinner followed by a scientific session and social mixer, and will conclude by noon on Thursday, April 25. Please plan to stay until the end. Because the 2013 meeting runs for 4 days, there will be a free afternoon on Tuesday April 23.
Organizer: Christian Tschudi -
Program Committee: Barbara Burleigh, Steve Beverley, David Horn, Torsten Ochsenreiter and Marc Ouellette
