Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Sarah Reece, Ms Heather Duncan, Dr Rachel Edgar and Dr Annie Curtis.

The time-of-day when infection occurs can dictate live-or-die outcomes for hosts. Remarkably, why time-of-day is so important for host-pathogen interactions remains unknown. A diversity of talks will be delivered by immunologists, chronobiologists, microbiologists, parasitologists, evolutionary ecologists. This meeting will explore how and why rhythms in pathogen activities, host immune responses, and their interactions drive disease processes and ultimately determine the severity and transmission of infections.

More information about the schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
