Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Meeting

 Saturday, April 27th, through noon on Wednesday, May 1st, 2019

Registration: Now Open through February 19th, 2019

Abstract Submission : Now Open through February 19th, 2019


The biennial KMCB Meeting provides a forum for discussion of the Molecular Cell Biology of Trypanosomes, Leishmania, and related model organisms, without restrictions on attendance. Researchers whose primary focus is on pathogenesis and drug development are also welcome. Presentations (talks and posters) of research-in-progress by young investigators are strongly encouraged, but the program will also feature overview talks by senior investigators, to respond to the often-heard complaint of students and postdocs that they rarely hear senior investigators discuss their work within a broader framework, which generally happens in the context of smaller invitation-only meetings. Overview speakers will be invited from among those who register to attend the meeting, with regard to the need for representative coverage of topics at current, recent, and future meetings. There will be no concurrent sessions. Any suggestions for coverage of specific topics in a workshop or panel format will be welcomed.

The meeting will commence with registration on the afternoon of Saturday April 27, with dinner followed by a scientific session and social mixer, and will conclude by noon on Wednesday, May 1. Please plan to stay until the end, there will be a free afternoon on Monday April 29.

Organizer: Christian Tschudi -
Program Committee: 

Barbara Burleigh, Harvard School of Public Health

Deadline: Midnight EST. on February 19, 2019

Assignment for a talk or poster will be confirmed: March 27, 2019


All registration, payment and abstract submissions must be conducted on-line. The registration process has been designed to help the meeting organizers keep track of registrations, abstracts and payments, to facilitate production of the printed abstract book, and to allow users continued access to their registration information and abstract submissions up until the registration deadline.

After registering you may submit your Abstract. You will receive an email confirmations for your abstract submissions. If you do not, then return to the abstract and redo the submission.  Be patient, especially if you use a MAC to enter your abstract.  The uploading can be slow.
Each person attending the conference must register separately. Because this is NOT a secure site and your password is not encrypted, DO NOT USE a password that you use for other purposes. DO NOT give your password to anyone else and do not use anyone else's password, as this could result in the accidental alteration or deletion of your abstract and registration information! To avoid this happening inadvertently, if you share a computer, you should clear the browser cache between registrations.
