3rd ASM Conference on Salmonella: Biology, Pathogenesis & Prevention

Presented in collaboration with the Society for General Microbiology (SGM) 

October 5 - 9, 2009 | Aix-en-Provence, France

Conference Scope

The 3rd International Conference on Salmonella will comprehensively integrate recent developments in subject areas ranging from the basic biology of Salmonella to genomics, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and disease prevention. Salmonella infections continue to cause substantial morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Foodborne outbreaks occur with regularity, multiple serovars cause major economic losses in livestock, and the co-existence of Salmonella and HIV infection in the developing world causes more than a million deaths each year. This conference will bring the world’s leading Salmonella experts to beautiful and historic Aix-en-Provence to provide a holistic appreciation of the field and discuss new strategies to ameliorate the burden of Salmonella-associated illness. 

Preliminary Scientific Sessions:

Evolution & Genomics (incl. Phages)
