Public Release: 

Metabolism of Infectious Diseases symposium June 12-15

Colorado State University

The establishment and outcome of infections are defined by molecular interactions between the host and pathogen. Research and understanding of host-pathogen interactions have grown dramatically in a post-genomic era.

Recent research examples include the study of Lyme disease and mosquito-borne viruses like Zika, dengue and yellow fever.

This symposium will bring together scientists to discuss infectious diseases and immunology research, with a collective interest in studying the metabolism of pathogens and their hosts.

Specific topics that will be addressed include:

  • The role of immunometabolism in infectious diseases
  • Pathogen and host interactions leading to adaptation of metabolic states and processes
  • Communication and signaling via small molecule metabolites
  • Emerging technologies and translation
