The Regional Centre for Biotechnology and the Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi are jointly organizing an International Symposium on Infectious Diseases during 12-14 November, 2018. Eminent researchers from across the globe studying these pathogens will participate in the conference along with young researchers and students. The idea of a broad conference is to allow researchers from varied backgrounds to come under one roof to discuss their findings and identify provocative questions across the spectrum of infectious diseases. The symposium will be hosting lectures, short talks by young investigators, poster sessions etc. so that the sessions enable thought-provoking discussions in broad themes from basic science to translation and application.
