Salmonellae cause a variety of diseases, ranging from gastroenteritis to enteric fever, in humans and other animals. In the developed world non-typhoidal serovars (NTS) including Typhimurium, Enteritidis, Heidelberg and Dublin are common food borne pathogens. NTS is now the most common cause of bacteremia in many sub-Saharan African countries. The enteric fevers, Typhoid and Paratyphoid, are caused by serovars that only infect humans and higher primates. These diseases cause over 20 million infections per year and typhoid alone are responsible for over 200,000 deaths. Drug resistant strains of Salmonella are now regularly observed in the clinic. The Salmonella GRC program is broad and includes current and emerging issues of relevance, as outlined in the session titles below. Our aim is to appeal to a wide range of Salmonella researchers across the spectrums of age, geography, and subfield. The program will facilitate communication between scientists in the field, provide a venue for younger and established scientists to interact, and encourage the exchange of ideas and dissemination of new data and techniques. In addition to the invited speakers we will select talks from submitted abstracts to highlight new discoveries from more junior researchers. Poster sessions are a vital element of the program and will provide the opportunity to network with people from all areas of the field while discussing the very highest level of research.
