Co-Infection: A Global Challenge for Disease Control

Multi-species co-infections impose one of the greatest challenges to global health and to our efforts to develop effective methods of infectious disease control. This symposium is designed to broaden and deepen our understanding of within-host and population level interactions between different co-infecting pathogens and propose appropriate multidisciplinary strategies to move towards clinical and public health solutions, including the delivery of effective vaccination and chemotherapy. Leading researchers bring their knowledge of immune responses in co-infected individuals, co-infection immunoepidemiology, modeling of co-infections to predict disease and infection outcomes, and the specific challenges that co-infection presents to vaccine design strategies, and effective application of chemotherapy.
