Keystone Symposia: Drug Discovery for Parasitic Diseases

24th January 2016 - 28th January 2016
Tahoe City, California, United States


This conference will showcase cutting-edge anti-parasitic drug discovery programs that illustrate the path from parasite biology to lead identification and from optimization to candidate selection. It will emphasize the need for coordinated integration of programs in medicinal chemistry, parasite biology, pharmacokinetics and safety assessment. It will feature emerging technologies such as chemical biology, chemoproteomics, chemical informatics, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics that are facilitating drug discovery. It will also discuss the current status of anti-parasitic drug resistance and advances in our understanding of mechanisms of resistance. The conference should be of interest to medicinal chemists, parasitologists, experts in drug discovery and development, pharmacologists and clinicians targeting the protozoa and helminths that cause serious human disease, including malaria, African and American trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis and multiple other parasitic infections.
