Our scientific program in 2019 will explore Infectious Diseases: Threats Old and New. We will reflect on the 100 years that have passed since the Spanish Flu arrived in Australia and from here, will consider national and global prospects for tackling current and emerging threats – known and unknown. What are the prospects for eliminating infectious diseases? How will the world tackle the next pandemic – ‘Disease X’? We will hear from national and international leaders in areas including pandemic preparedness, antimicrobial resistance, and disease elimination strategies.

The program includes keynote addresses from:

Professor Sir Roy Anderson FRS FMedSci – Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Director of the London Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases

Professor Barry Marshall AC FRS FAA FAHMS – Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, and Co-Director of Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases at The University of Western Australia

Other speakers will include:
