CIRMF Symposium on the "Emergence of infectious diseases, environments and biodiversity"
Libreville, Gabon, 4 and 5 November 2011
For the past 50 years, emerging infectious diseases have drastically increased and almost 75% of them are of animal origin or transmitted through animals. Although diseases emergence is a dynamic phenomenon closely depending on host-pathogen interactions, those interactions occur in extremely diversified environments and constantly evolving ecosystems. Also pathogen evolution is submitted to interactions between ecosystemic factors, human and animal health as a complex system and needs a broad expertise for its understanding. Ultimately, tackling emerging infectious diseases has to integrate all these parameters and to come up with a global approach.
In order to address these questions, the Centre International de Recherches Médicales de Franceville, in collaboration with the Gabonese Government and, in partnership with France, welcomes you to the symposium “Emergence of infectious diseases, environments and biodiversity" to be held on November 4th and 5th, 2011, in Libreville (Gabon).
