Event description

Description

The Academy's 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting 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.

To start proceedings, Fellows and Associate Members are invited to participate in the Academy’s Mentorship Workshop, which takes place on Wednesday 9 October.

The main AAHMS meeting will commence on Thursday 10 October with a keynote address from Professor Sir Roy Anderson FRS FMedSci, the Director of the London Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases. Later that evening, we will celebrate our 2019 new Fellows at a spectacular Gala Dinner at the University Club of Western Australia, where we are delighted that CSL will also award their 2019 CSL Centenary Fellowships.

Friday 11 October will feature our second keynote address, from Professor Barry Marshall AC FRS FAA FAHMS, Co-Director of the Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases at The University of Western Australia and Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine.
