MAM2016 will highlight the latest molecular advances in our understanding of host cell invasion, virulence mechanisms, immunity and pathogenesis, drug resistance, drug and vaccine approaches, population biology, transmission, and epidemiology. The meeting will focus on multiple Plasmodium species including Plasmodium vivax and its latent stage in the liver as well as host/parasite interactions in both the human and the mosquito vector. 

MAM2016 intends to encourage intellectual discussion that will assist in developing new ideas for research and interventions from diverse fields of biochemistry, cell biology, medicinal chemistry, vaccine development, molecular genetics, clinical research, systems biology, and population-based studies. The central goal of the meeting is to provide new insights into the science, technologies, and novel tools required to combat malaria.
 
MAM2016 will feature leading experts in the field while maintaining ample opportunities for young researchers and scientists from malaria-endemic countries to showcase their research through selected talks and posters from submitted abstracts.
