Joint Keystone Symposia with Grand Challenges Annual Meeting
Grand Challenges: Where we go next: African leadership for African Innovation
The MESA Correspondent volunteers report on the latest in malaria research from conferences around the world. The synopses are shared online, enabling people who could not attend the meeting to read about the latest advances. The MESA Correspondents Program is a collaboration between MESA and the conference organizers.
It’s Sunday evening in Yaoundé, Cameroon, and the four young career researchers that will cover the 6th Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) Annual Conference as MESA Correspondents have finally met each other. After many email exchanges, it’s time to put faces to names. While sharing a tasty Cameroonian meal, the group discusses how scientific meetings offer the opportunity of hearing cutting edge research and valuable lessons learnt from peers and mentors, but are also the perfect environment to exchange information, generate new ideas and gain knowledge and skills. Together with the MESA team, the group discusses the program and the presentations that each Correspondent will have to report on and realises how both broad and niche disciplines in the field of malaria and related topics will be covered in the meeting. Another point of discussion is the fact that a growing number of conferences are held globally, but as both calendars and budgets are limited, not everyone interested in all these meetings can attend.
The Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance (MESA) is seeking four volunteer MESA Correspondents to report from the Keystone Symposia conference "The Malaria Endgame" in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, October 30—November 2, 2019.
