2nd International Conference on Global Challenges in Neglected Tropical Diseases

June 25-27, 2018, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Confirmed Plenary Speakers
Dr. Marc Ouellette – Université Laval, Québec, Canada
Dr. Dale J. Kempf – Distinguished Research Fellow at AbbVie

Conference areas

  • Biology and pathogenesis of the pathogens, diseases and hosts.
  • Molecular targets-based and structure-based medicinal chemistry approach to maintain healthy drug-discovery pipelines.
  • Monitoring, containment and treatment of drug resistant cases.
  • Bench to bedside translational research to evaluate new drugs and drug combinations.
  • Socioeconomic and public awareness programs in neglected tropical parasitic diseases.
  • Opportunities to develop multidisciplinary programs and current funding opportunities

The aim of this International conference is to bring participants from North, Central and South America together, as well as from other regions where tropical diseases are prevalent, to discuss new approaches to combat neglected tropical diseases. Another purpose is to elevate the awareness of neglected tropical diseases, particularly in Latin America, as well as to stimulate medicinal chemists in these countries to conduct research in the field by making contacts between laboratories in America and other parts of the world. With the latter in mind, one to one meetings between participants will be arranged.
