Dear friends and colleagues,
We at the Department of Microbiology, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, India take the honor to organize the 1st South Asian Melioidosis Congress 2015 (SAMC 2015) under the theme ‘Melioidosis – Unraveling the Enigma’ on 20-22 November, 2015 at Manipal University, India.
This is a platform to excite the young minds through learning from each other and help build their career for research in melioidosis. This noble conglomeration of physicians, microbiologists, infectious diseases specialists, researchers, public health personnel and global experts for the first time in this part of the world will hopefully usher a new era in the research and diagnosis of melioidosis and other emerging tropical bacterial diseases.
It may create a network among the South Asian countries like India and neighboring countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, Bhutan and Pakistan. Researchers from Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Vietnam, PDR Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and all over the world are warmly welcomed to this academic event and to the educational town Manipal.
