The International Conferences fulfill a major purpose of the Tularemia International Society, namely to facilitate the assembly, acquaintance, and association of scientists engaged in tularemia research.  Tularemia meetings focus on fundamental, clinical, and applied research regarding any aspect of Francisella tularensis.  Research uncovers not only the biology of this fascinating bacterium, but also provides the basis for future development of treatments, preventive interventions, and disease diagnosis.

The forthcoming 9th International Conference will keep with past traditions by maintaining an interdisciplinary program.  The meeting will highlight research efforts on the pathogenesis, cell biology, pathogenesis, animal models, diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, clinical features, ecology, epidemiology, and host responses to Francisella.  An overreaching goal of the three day program is to provide an environment that will serve to promote connections and collaboration among scientists doing cutting edge research regarding Francisella.

Working session and abstract submission topics:

  • Human Infections and Treatment;
  • Epidemiology and Ecology;
  • Host Response and  Immunity;
  • Vaccines;
  • Bacteriology, gene regulation, stress;
  • Pathogenesis and Cell Biology
