The unique biology of Plasmodium vivax with features such as the latent hypnozoite stage and early gametocytogenesis makes it more difficult to control and eliminate than Plasmodium falciparum. The development of Plasmodium vivax-specific interventions is thus clearly a priority for the malaria elimination research agenda. Development of tools that will allow the program to accelerate towards Plasmodium vivax elimination requires a bench-to-bedside-to-public health approach that facilitates collaborative, interdisciplinary research.
The International Conferences on Plasmodium vivax Research (ICPVR) are the only global series of conferences dedicated entirely to research on Plasmodium vivax malaria. ICPVR 2019 will bring together 250-300 researchers working on diverse aspects of Plasmodium vivax research from basic cell and molecular biology to field epidemiology, vector and clinical studies.
The conference will serve as an excellent opportunity to review progress made in different areas of Plasmodium vivax research, define knowledge gaps and provide opportunities to researchers to explore collaborative research strategies to address them. Overall the goal of the meeting is to provide a platform that highlights work on Plasmodium vivax, which has often been neglected, but is extremely important in the fight to eliminate malaria.
On Tuesday 25th June, there will be two side meetings ahead of the International Conference on Plasmodium vivax Research (ICPVR) at Institut Pasteur in Paris.
