  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Local Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee, the SPPV-​HPV Por­tuguese Soci­ety and the Inter­na­tional Papil­lo­mavirus Soci­ety (IPVS), Kenes Inter­na­tional is hon­oured to invite you to par­tic­i­pate in the 30th Inter­na­tional Papil­lo­mavirus Con­fer­ence & Clin­i­cal and Pub­lic Health Work­shops that will be held in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal on Sep­tem­ber 1721, 2015 at the Lis­boa Con­gress Cen­tre.

    Con­fer­ence Aims

    This excit­ing con­fer­ence will bring together researchers, clin­i­cians and other health­care pro­fes­sion­als in an inter­na­tional forum, enabling the exchange of the lat­est advances in both sci­ence and prac­tice, within the research and clin­i­cal community.

    Through a vari­ety of state-​of-​the-​art ses­sions, keynote​lectures, round­table dis­cus­sions, work­shops and ses­sions includ­ing oral and poster pre­sen­ta­tions, the con­fer­ence will have a spe­cial focus on HPV and glob­al­iza­tion and explor­ing new worlds in basic and clin­i­cal research, and new pro­pos­als to reduce inequities in access to health.

    In line with the IPVS mis­sion, address­ing the most recent advances across the spec­trum of HPV research from basic sci­ences to pub­lic health, con­fer­ence high­lights will include epi­demi­ol­ogy of HPV; mol­e­c­u­lar biol­ogy; basic immunol­ogy and patho­gen­e­sis of HPV; vac­cines; pre­ven­tion of cer­vi­cal can­cer and other papil­lo­mavirus asso­ci­ated dis­eases; strate­gies to help in the devel­op­ment of research; and pro­mo­tion of the spread of the sci­en­tific knowl­edge to ben­e­fit the whole community.
