theme of the conference

The International Conference on Legionella is a premier international meeting held every four years to discuss new findings on Legionella pneumophila, other Legionella, and the disease caused by these organisms and also to identify knowledge gaps that exist in controlling Legionella infections of humans. These four-day meetings have been held in various locations in Europe and the USA. The 6th International Conference, Legionella 2005 in Chicago, was attended by many international leaders in Legionella research and attracted 400 attendees to participate in nearly 40 invited lectures, 200 poster presentations, three panel discussions, and numerous opportunities that fostered scientific collaboration.
The 7th International Conference in this series, Legionella 2009, will address a wide range of current research and trends related to Legionella.  Sessions will be dedicated to epidemiology and clinical aspects; pathogenesis and immunology; genetics and genomics; ecology and evolution; physiology, regulation, and biochemistry.

The Conference will be of interest to researchers; those with clinical, public health and epidemiological interests; regulatory agency representatives; representatives from industry with interests in Legionella and Legionnairesí disease. Participation by students and scientists in the early stages of their careers is highly encouraged. Legionella 2009 will provide abundant opportunities for networking and exchange of information between senior scientists and professionals, new investigators and students.
