We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land where this conference is located and recognise their continuing connection to country and community.
Welcome to the Molecular Approaches to Malaria Conference (MAM) 2020. Located at Lorne, Victoria Australia, the conference will take place over a span of 5 days from Sunday 23 February – Thursday 27 February 2020.
In 2000, the MAM conference was conceived as a forum to present the very latest advances in malaria research and to consolidate and forge new collaborative links between international researchers, exchanging information on cutting-edge technological tools and scientific advances.
In 2020, we expect more than 400 delegates over the five days. Our stellar list of speakers will share their knowledge on new strategies to reduce the global burden of malaria. The interactive program will provide ample opportunities for researchers to present their research. In addition to the program, there will be workshops on key themes in malaria biology.
MAM 2020 will feature leading experts in the field while providing opportunities for young researchers and scientists from malaria endemic countries to showcase their research through selected talks and posters from submitted abstracts.
As an equity and diversity initiative in support of delegates with parenting or caring responsibilities, a private room will be available at the conference venue for parents with young children. Live audio from the Plenary will be available in this room.
We look forward to welcoming you in Lorne for the MAM 2020 conference!
