Southern California Eukaryotic Pathogen Symposium


Join Us for the 2021 Symposium on Oct. 27, 2021

The study of eukaryotic pathogens includes such diverse organisms as intracellular protozoa, helminths and fungal pathogens. The Annual Southern Californian Eukaryotic Pathogen Symposium (SCEP) brings together researchers from more than 15 different labs from Southern California  that investigate the inner workings and host response to these important pathogens. It is the aim of this symposium to bring together these like-minded but individual groups to facilitate interaction and collaboration.

Our 11th annual symposium will take place on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 online via Zoom. Registration is free and we will circulate our annual abstract booklet via email.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Jane Carlton, the Julius Silver, Roslyn S. Silver, and Enid Silver Winslow professor at NYU Department of Biology and faculty director of Genomics at the Center for Genomics & Systems Biology, speaking about "The trickiness of Trichomonas genomes."

Registration and abstract deadline is October 18, 2021.
