Pathogen-host-interactions of major animal infectious diseases and zoonoses

This summer school will provide a forum for learning and discussing the latest insights into the molecular mechanisms of bacterial, viral and parasitic infections in their natural animal hosts. Emphasis will be on approaches that are at the frontier of current knowledge, including genomics, bioinformatics and structural biology. Key molecular mechanisms underlying host and tissue specificity leading to the emergence of new microbial infections will be discussed with top scientist working on these topics.
