Measuring Progress - RSTMH Biennial Meeting, 25-27th September 2014, Oxford, UK



RSTMH is delighted to announce that its next Biennial Meeting will take place at Oxford Town Hall (St Aldate’s, Oxford, OX1 1BX) from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 September 2014.

We have chosen the theme Measuring Progress for this year’s meeting and over the three days our focus will be: how do we measure progress in our activities to ensure we are having maximum impact? Measuring progress is a theme that should embrace the full diversity of interests that RSTMH proudly represents.

We have been fortunate to attract a distinguished array of keynote speakers, session chairs and co-chairs who will shape the scientific content of the sessions around this Measuring Progress theme.

The full details of the programme are here and include representatives of the development aid community, the charitable sector, international funding agencies, as well as the more usual academic suspects. All conference participants are encouraged to translate Measuring Progress into their working areas, so please expect a much wider thematic programme than usual.

In particular, we are delighted to welcome Alan Magill in his capacity as President of the ASTMH and Jeremy Farrar as Director of the Wellcome Trust as our distinguished keynote speakers along with Chris Murray who will be giving the RSTMH Chadwick Memorial Prize Lecture in the Sheldonian Theatre on the evening of Wednesday 24 September.

We are also humbled by the active participation of our stellar selection of session chairs.

When considering your travel arrangements, please be aware that Measuring Progress is flanked by the BioMed Central Challenges in Malaria Research meeting which will be held at the Examination Schools in Oxford from 22 to 24 September and the ISNTD Philanthropy conference at the London Foundling Museum on 29 September.
