The Infectious Diseases Translational Research Programme from National University Singapore together with the Department of Biological Sciences will be hosting the second edition of the International Vector-Borne Diseases Conference (IVBDC), which will take place from November 21-23, 2023 at the National University of Singapore. Vector-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, schistosomiasis, human African trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and onchocerciasis, cause more than 700,000 deaths globally. Mosquitoes, sandflies, blackflies, ticks, tsetse flies, mites and lice transmit the pathogens including parasites, viruses and bacteria that cause these diseases. The major vector-borne diseases account for 17% of all infectious diseases. The tropical and subtropical areas, including Singapore, are disproportionately affected. Recent outbreaks of dengue, malaria, chikungunya, yellow fever and Zika afflicted populations, claimed lives and overwhelmed health systems.To encourage and entice participation of the next generation of young scientists to work in this research area, and to find solutions to reduce the burden of vector-borne diseases, we are organizing an International Conference that will bring local, regional and global scientific leaders and younger researchers together. Participants will present their recent research findings and will exchange cutting-edge strategies in various aspects of vector-borne diseases. The Scientific Sessions include epidemiology, vector control strategies, vaccination, host-pathogen interactions, vector-pathogen interactions, vector-host interactions, pathogenesis, vector barriers, and vector competence.
