Recent developments in infectious disease research

Museum de Toulouse, Auditorium Picot Lapeyrouse

 

This symposium is organized within the framework of the Equipex Aninfimip, financed by the French government as part of the Investments for the Future program.

 

This Symposium will discuss the monitoring of physiological parameters and functional exploration of the immune response in the context of infectious diseases for the development of new options for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infection.
