Chlamydia researchers and students are all welcome and invited to submit abstracts.

We are delighted to host this meeting in the UK for the first time. It will be a high quality scientific research meeting concluding with a clinical day (in association with BASHH) which will provide an update by international experts on the natural history, pathogenesis, screening, diagnosis and management of chlamydial infections.

The scientific programme will provide the opportunity to present the latest advances in the field and to exchange ideas with many outstanding scientists working in chlamydial research. The theme for the meeting is “Applying Chlamydia basic science, pathogenesis research and evolving diagnostics to improving control programmes”.

Oxford is famous for its ancient university and its place in English history. It has been established since the 9th century and has been home to royalty and scholars. Oxford is a premier visitor destination in the UK and is known as The City of Dreaming Spires. The city is also a busy cosmopolitan centre with rapid transport links to London.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford.
