Evolution of pathogens and parasite avoidance behaviours

External Event - 12th to 13th Jun 2017

This event is taking place on the 12-13 June 2017 at Kavli Royal Society Centre.

Avoidance behaviours protect species as diverse as worms, ants, fish, monkeys and humans from infection by reducing or preventing contact with parasites and pathogens. This meeting will unite researchers working in invertebrates, vertebrates and humans to discuss the evolution of pathogen avoidance behaviour and how these avoidance instincts can be harnessed to improve animal and human health around the world.
