CEND’s 9th Annual Symposium will be held on March 31, 2017 from 9AM-5PM in 245 Li Ka Shing Center. This year’s symposium is ”Deconstructing TB: Insights from Fundamental Research.”

Emerging and neglected diseases are a group of debilitating and often deadly infections. As a group, these diseases are poorly understood and generally lack effective tools for prevention, control, and treatment. CEND Annual Symposium aims to strengthen connections between San Francisco Bay Area scientists working on infectious diseases of global health importance and the broader global health research, product development, and advocacy communities. The symposium features a dynamic list of invited speakers from around the world, including scientists from developing countries. Each March the event attracts over 400 registrants. Participants include academic researchers from UC Berkeley, UCSF, Stanford, UC Davis as well as representatives from local biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies and global health nonprofits.
