Molecular research approaches are instrumental in deepening our understanding of how pathogens cause infection, survive and multiply within their hosts, or spread among their host population. The one-day symposium pays tribute to the outstanding scientific achievements and passionate work of Prof. Ingrid Felger and Prof. Hans-Peter Beck, both Swiss TPH, over the past 25 years.
