Upcoming Conference – Evolution of pathogen and parasite avoidance behaviours

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Rachel McMullan and Cecile Sarabian

Avoidance behaviours protect species as diverse as worms, ants, fish, monkeys and humans from infection by reducing or preventing contact with parasites and pathogens. This meeting will unite researchers working in invertebrates, vertebrates and humans to discuss the evolution of pathogen avoidance behaviour and how these avoidance instincts can be harnessed to improve animal and human health around the world.

The meeting is free to attend; participants just have to cover their accommodation, travel and subsistence.
