The Organising Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentation at the 10th International Conference on the Pathogenesis of Mycobacterial Infections.

The abstracts are submitted in one of four selected areas: Mycobacterial effector molecules, Host immune response, Clinical management and Others. Accepted abstracts will be published in the abstract book that will be available in pdf-format at the Conference web site.

The presenting author must register for the meeting and pay the registration fee when submitting the abstract. If the abstract not is accepted, the registration fee is refundable.

For registered PhD students and postdocs, we offer the opportunity to apply for a travel grant á 1000 euro each. There are 10 scholarships available and these will be selected by the Organising Committee and the Scientific Advisory Board.  Please, click the box in the abstract link if you’re a student/postdoc and like to apply for a travel grant.
