Understanding and Targeting Host Factors in HIV, TB and Other Infections

07 Oct 2015 - 10 Oct 2015 - Parador de Oropesa, Spain

We are proud to announce the 1st Zing Understanding and Targeting Host Factors in HIV, TB and Other Infections Conference will take place in October 2015 at the Parador Oropesa.

Pathogens have been a major force in the evolution of human immunity. This conference will focus on the evolution and function of host genes that control the major human pathogens, HIV and TB, as well as other infections. Sessions will explore how host mechanisms have been targeted by pathogens to influence susceptibility or resistance of humans to these infections and they will investigate how pathogens hijack host factors to survive and propagate. Treatments that target host-pathogen interactions will also be discussed.
