Eukaryome 2019

The Institut Pasteur is holding the meeting "Eukaryome impact on Intestine homeostasis and mucosal immunology" in Paris, France - October 16 to 18,2019. The conferences will address the following topics: 

- Phylogenetic, prevalence, and diversity of intestinal eukaryotic microbes; and their (still enigmatic) historical evolution and potential contributions to mucosal immune homeostasis.
- Integrative biology to study the molecular cell biology of parasite-host interactions and the multiple parameters underlining the infectious process.
- The exploitation of tissue engineering and microfluidics to establish three-dimensional (3D) systems that help to understand homeostasis and pathological processes in the human intestine.

A large panel of experts is engaged in this event. The organizing committee would be happy to welcome you to Paris, France for this exciting meeting.  

You can find all the informations on the following website:

Deadline for registration : until maximum capacity is reached

Deadline for abstracts submission  : August 26, 2019 (10 short talks will be selected among the abstracts submitted)



The European Medicines Agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has adopted a positive scientific opinion of fexinidazole, the first all-oral treatment that has been shown to be Fexinidazole162018 1024x683
efficacious for both stages of sleeping sickness. This approval is a result of clinical trials led by the non-profit research and development organization DNDi and an application submitted by Sanofi. The decision paves the way for the distribution of fexinidazole in endemic countries in 2019.
