Mycobacterial Implications in Crohn’s and Chronic Inflammatory Diseases
September 21 & 22, 2018
Lawrence Hall of Science | Berkeley, California
For thousands of years, mycobacterial species have caused some of the most insidious diseases in human history, such as tuberculosis and leprosy. Human Paratuberculosis Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing patients and health care professionals information about the role of mycobacteria, particularly Mycobacterium avium spp. paratuberculosis (MAP), in immune conditions.
In September 2018, HPF and a group of dedicated researchers will bring their experience and expertise to Berkeley, California for a two-day conference. Featuring presenters and experts from across the globe, this conference has been specifically designed to address the role of mycobacteria in Crohn’s disease, Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis and other chronic conditions.
The conference will be open to all on Friday, September 21, 2018, and limited to doctors, researchers and health care professionals on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Presentations, panel discussions, audience Q&A and a Saturday working session are planned. Lunch will be provided at no additional cost. Net proceeds will support innovative MAP research projects.
