Theo Murphy meeting organised by Professor Sarah Reece, Dr Rachel Edgar and Professor Annie Curtis.

The time of day when infection occurs can dictate live-or-die outcomes for hosts, but how timing impacts host-pathogen interactions remains largely unknown. Leaders in the fields of circadian biology, immunology, microbiology, parasitology, virology and evolutionary ecology will explore how and why rhythms in pathogen activities and host immune responses drive disease processes, ultimately determining the severity and transmission of infections.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.
