TROPICAL DISEASES 2020

About Conference


With the success of Tropical Diseases 2019, we are glad to announce the "9th International Conference on Tropical Medicine and Infectious Diseases" which has been slated on February 24-25, 2020 at Berlin, Germany. This could be an ideal platform to discuss advanced challenges in tropical medicine, infectious diseases, pathology, microbiology, STD’s and NTD’s with expertise gatherings and also includes stimulating research outcomes from Keynote presentations, Speaker talks, Young Research Forums, Symposia, and Workshops.

Conference Highlights


Track 1:Clinical Tropical Medicine

Include various drugs clinical trials and various Bioethics issues. One major topic is Travel Medicine which deals with the health issues of various international travelers. An estimated of about 80 million people travel from developed to developing countries. Specific diseases affecting international traveler are Yellow Fever, Meningitis and Malaria. The main focus under this is the vaccination and the 6 I’s which are Insects, Ingestions, Indiscretion, Injuries, Immersions, insurance.

Track  2: Tropical Biomedical Science

Biomedical sciences are a set of applied sciences applying portions of natural science or formal science, to knowledge, interventions, or technology that are of use in healthcare or public health. Such disciplines as medical microbiology, clinical virology, clinical epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, and biomedical engineering are medical sciences.

Track 3:Tropical Medicine

With the high incidence rate of Infectious Diseases across the Tropical region there is more and more requirement of medicine and new preventive measure especially in underdeveloped countries. According to a report published in a highly esteemed journal, more than a billion people, one-sixth of the world’s population are suffering from Tropical Diseases. we would like to invite all the researchers and scientists from the field of epidemiology, virologists, parasitologists, logisticians, microbiologists, public health.

Track 4: Neglected Tropical Diseases

These are the diseases which are abundant in tropical region and mainly affecting the world’s poorest population and mostly in the developing countries. As they affect poor people they remain unnoticed, thus they are called “Neglected”. These diseases do not include major 3 Infections like AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria. There are 13 diseases included under this category some of which are dengue, rabies, Chagas diseases, Buruli ulcer.

Track 5: Tropical Diseases in Animals

Many pathogens are able to live outside the animal’s body until conditions occurred are favorable for entering and infecting them by causing Infectious diseases. Pathogens enter the body in various ways like penetrating the skin or an eye, being eaten with food, or by being breathed into the lungs. After their entry into a host, pathogens actively multiply and produce disease by interfering with the functions of specific organs or tissues of the host. Many organism like bacteria and viruses which causes tropical diseases among the world’s poorest region also infect livestock and other animals. These diseases worsen the impact of NTDs on people but on the other hand, provide opportunities for developing new approaches to tackle human diseases. The main diseases concerned among Animal are African trypanosomiasis and Chagas Diseases and their being the cattle including Cows.

Track 6: Entomology

Entomology is the scientific study of insects and their relationship to humans, the environment, and other organisms. Entomology includes the study of terrestrial animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla, such as arachnids, myriapods, earthworms, land snails, and slugs. Entomologists make great contributions to such diverse fields as agriculture, chemistry, biology, human/animal health, molecular science, criminology, and forensics.

Track 7: Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations. Epidemiology came out with developing a methodology that can be used in clinical research, public health studies, basic research in the biological sciences, etc.

Track 8: Parasitology

Parasitology is the study of the relationship between parasites and their hosts, and the relationship between them. As a biological discipline, the scope of parasitology is not determined by the organism or environment in question but by their way of life. This means it forms a synthesis of other disciplines and draws on techniques from fields such as cell biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, evolution, and ecology.

Track 9: Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, those being unicellular, multicellular, or acellular. such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi, and protozoa. This discipline includes fundamental research on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution and clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response to these agents.

Track 10: Immunology

The immune system has developed a variety of approaches in controlling viral and bacterial infections, which range from direct killing of the pathogen to elaborating cytokines that inhibit replication. It describes how body copes with bacterial, viral and parasitic infections.

Track 11: Infectious Diseases

The diseases which are caused by pathogenic microorganism such as virus, bacteria, parasites, fungi come under the category of Infectious. Another category is Zoonotic diseases which are the diseases affecting animals but also infects when transmitted to humans. These diseases are transmissible from one person to another. According to a report in today’s world more than half a billion people are affected with communicable diseases which includes various kind of infections depending on the diseases causing agents and arboviral diseases. Infectious diseases are one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

Track 12: Major Infectious diseases

 The diseases which are caused by death globally, particularly among children and adults. The spread of new pathogens and the threat of antimicrobial resistance pose particular challenges in combating these diseases. Major Infectious Diseases identifies feasible, cost-effective packages of interventions and strategies across delivery platforms to prevent and treat HIV or AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, tuberculosis, malaria, adult febrile illness, viral hepatitis, and neglected tropical diseases.

Track 13: Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases or venereal diseases are those infections that pass from one person to another through sexual contacts like semen, vaginal secretions, or blood during sexual intercourse.

Track 14: Genetics and Multi-System Diseases

This includes various research and trial measure and application in the field of genetics so that they can help in the treatment for Tropical Medicine, some of the application that can be considered useful is rDNA technology. Treatment of various diseases that are hereditary and other diseases treatment at the genetic level. Multi-system diseases affect skin joints and the gastrointestinal tract. The diseases coronial-artery diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, pulmonary hypertension.

Track  15: Mental Health and Nocosomal Infections

Mental health is defined as the level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness. It includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. A Nosocomial infection, also known as a hospital-acquired infection, is an infection that is acquired in a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation facility, outpatient clinic, or other health care facility. Health care staff can spread infection, in addition to contaminated equipment, bed linens, or air droplets. These infections can originate from the outside environment to another infected patient or staff that may be infected. Recent research speaks that these microorganism originating from the patient's own skin microbiota, becoming opportunistic after surgery or other procedures that compromise the protective skin barrier.

Track 16: Disease prevention, Control and elimination, Vaccine and Treatment

This include various research and development, related to vaccines that can be helpful in the treatment of infectious diseases and various initiatives for providing these vaccines to people of developing countries which are suffering from Infectious Diseases.
