Session 3Infectious diseases

Infectious diseases have attained epidemic proportions killing people worldwide. Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms like bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites, and germs which are found in air, water, and soil. Infections are caused by eating, drinking, breathing, and touching anything that contains infection causing germs. Infections are also caused through animals and insect bites. People get infected with germs through kissing and sexual contact. The best way to be safe from infections is to be hygienically clean. Medicines and vaccines can also help cure infections. But there are infectious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, HIV/AIDS, West Nile Fever, Lyme disease, drug-resistance tuberculosis, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus have all become drug resistance and hence become difficult to cure. Yet the recent developments in combating infectious diseases have proved that every disease has cure barring some few. The session on Infectious Diseases examines the emerging trends in research, the discovery of new antibiotics and drugs, antidrug resistance, and the methods of prevention and many more issues relating to infectious diseases.

Session 4Antimicrobials and Chemotherapy

An antimicrobial is an agent that destroys disease-causing microorganisms and further inhibits their growth. Antimicrobials are nothing but antibiotics, which are used in treating and prevention of several infections caused by bacteria, yeast, fungi, and parasites. Antimicrobial resistance is when microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, etc  become immune to antibiotics and resist the effects of drugs rendering them ineffective. As for chemotherapy, there are drugs which are chosen depending on the types of cancers, the patient's age, the stage of the cancer, the patient's other ill-health issues such as cardiac, liver, diabetes, or kidney diseases, the drugs he is using for these ill-health conditions, its effects and drug-resistance are the factors to be considered while administering chemotherapy to cancer patients. This session focuses its attention on advances made in research, developing new antimicrobials to be used in chemotherapy to fight, cure, control many types of cancers, the newer drugs to combat drug-resistance, the application of nanotechnology and robotics in developing antimicrobials and chemotherapy drugs.

Session 5Viral Infections

Viral infections are caused by viruses. The most common of them are cold, fever, influenza, diarrhoea, dengue, hepatitis, rabies, measles, smallpox, polio,AIDS and Herpes simplex which causes cold sores and genital herpes. A virus is a germ smaller than bacteria. Viruses cannot grow and survive on their own without the host cells. They live and grow in living organisms such as human bodies. Viruses have a protective coating and hence more difficult to kill unlike bacteria. Viruses cannot be cured with antibiotics because of their protective coating and on the contrary it leads to antibiotic resistance. But vaccines help prevent many viral infections. Viral infections can be detected through blood tests such as ELISA. Viral infections needs to be combated effectively. This session on viral infections focuses its attention on advance research methodologies, the development of new vaccines, and strong antibiotics, use of nanotechnology and genetic engineering in combating viral infections. 

Session 6Microbial Pathogenesis

Microbial Pathogenesis is one of the many branches of medical science. It is the study of origination and development of diseases caused by microbes. It is one of the pathological processes that looks into diagnosis through the examination of tissues, organs, and bodily fluids. Pathology is a major vital field in medical science and healthcare deliverables. It examines the condition of a disease using laboratory techniques enabling the right treatment and possible cure. Clinical pathology is the diagnosis of diseases based on laboratory study of body fluids. Molecular pathology deals with drug development and treatment strategies, especially various cancers. Microbial Pathogens has thrown open the doors wide open for pathology and its sub-fields like molecular pathology, clinical pathology, pathology of infections, diagnostic pathology, veterinary pathology to name a few. This session on microbial pathogenesis examines the technological advancements in the study of microbial pathogenesis and its remediation methods, the technological developments in pathology, and the related research studies, the discovery of new probing techniques in determining the causative factors of diseases by caused by various microbes.  

Session 7Disease Diagnosis and Prevention

Diseases are many such as infectious diseases, allergic diseases, chronic diseases, and life-threatening diseases and other major diseases include types of cancers, diabetes, lung disease, cardiac diseases, paralysis, hepatitis, neurological diseases, cold, fever, dengue, typhoid, STDs, AIDS/HIV and so on. Every disease has its own diagnostic methods and prevention modalities. But the major problem that pathologists and diagnosis experts face is the lack of complete information about the causes and factors of diseases, especially in developing and under-developed countries. This is the big challenge that pathologists, diagnosis experts face today. Besides, everyday a new disease emerges somewhere in the world further complicating the role of diagnosis professionals. If once the right cause and factors are known preventive measures can be taken by agencies and governments of the world. This session, Disease Diagnosis and Prevention has thrown open the doors wide for exploring the possibilities the newer methodologies and techniques in disease diagnosis and its prevention. The research  that is taking place in the world about disease diagnosis and prevention, the efficacy of its results, the technologies, the latest instruments and equipment, the possible emergence of nanotechnology and robotics in disease diagnosis and prevention are some of the topics that are going to be discussed in this conference.  

Session 8Medical Microbiology

Medical Microbiology deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases through its research and studies on microbial pathogens. Medical Microbiology also involves in developing antibiotics through its research and studies on non-pathogenic species and the application of their properties in developing treatment methods. On the whole, medical microbiology improvises the human health by discovering preventive measures or cure or treatment methodologies through its research and studies on various clinical applications of microbes, the characteristics of pathogens including its transmission, infection and growth mechanisms. Through its research and studies, medical  microbiology plays a key role in identifying the potential health risks to the community, educating them and helping them develop or adopt good health practices as preventive measures. The major role that this medical microbiology plays is in controlling epidemics and outbreaks of diseases. This session on medical microbiology focuses its attention on the developments made in research studies on microbes, the emerging trends in studies on non-pathogen microbes, the application of nanotechnology, robotics and genetic engineering in medical microbiology in preventing the outbreak of diseases and so on would be discussed in detail in this conference.

Session 9Nosocomial Infections

Nosocomial Infections are caused by infections contracted from within the hospitals, healthcare centres, nursing homes, rehabilitation centres, clinical facilities, and their surroundings or through staff of hospitals, through contaminated equipment, bed linens, droplets in air, prevailing unhygienic condition, from patients to susceptible persons and so on. The source of nosocomial infections cannot be traced or detected. If the patient in a hospital has contacted the infection from his own skin, it is still be considered nosocomial infection since he contacted in the hospital. To avoid nosocomial infections in hospitals and clinical centres and facilities requires sanitation procedures to be adopted. Sanitation protocols include disinfecting the surface floors, sterilizing the equipment and instruments, maintaining hygienic conditions throughout the hospital premises neat staff uniforms and other preventive measures need to be adopted as remediation measures. This session on nosocomial infections discusses and highlights the remedial measures to be adopted in hospitals, clinical facilities and other ways and means of avoiding of getting infected with nosocomial infections.

Session 10Antimicrobial Agents

Antimicrobial agents are those that destroy diseases and infections caused by different types of organisms such as bacteria, virus, parasites, fungi in human beings and animals. These antimicrobial agents further inhibit the growth and spread of infections and diseases in bodies. Antimicrobial agents comprise antibiotics, antiseptics and disinfectants. Antibiotics work against bacterial fungal, and parasitic infections. And antiviral drugs work against viral infections. Antimicrobial Agents are also grouped together as antibacterial, antivirals, antifungals and antiparasitics. Disinfectants are those antimicrobial pesticides which control or inhibit the growth of microbes by the use of disinfection, sanitation protect the laboratories, processes, systems, water and other chemical substances from getting contaminated by bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, protozoa and other harmful microbes. This session on Antimicrobial Agents examines the latest developments in drug delivery systems to combat infections and diseases caused by microbes, the advancements in research, the use of nanotechnology in developing new antimicrobial agents and several other issues that explore the possibilities for newer technologies in antimicrobial agents.

Session 12Microbial Biochemistry

Microbial Biochemistry deals with the study of microbes, their growth and its effects on human health. It concentrates on life-threatening infections such as fungal infections, on which there is limited scientific knowledge including its therapeutics. Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes that takes place within and relating to living organisms such as its functions, structures, and interactions including nucleic acids, carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. The microbial cells contain carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulphur, phosphorus, iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, etc. Combined together Microbial Biochemistry has a major role to play in developing antibiotics and demonstrating therapeutics efficacy through the studies of bacterial growth, the biological fixation of nitrogen, biosynthesis of amino acids etc. This session further discusses the technological advancements made, the emerging trends in research studies, their efficacy and its practicable applications, the influence of robotics, nanotechnology and genetic engineering on microbial biochemistry, the development of antibiotics to life-threatening diseases and so on.

Session 13 Fungal Diseases

Everywhere around you, you will find Fungi in the soil, on plants, indoor surfaces, outdoors and on human skin. There are an over 1.5 million species of fungi on earth. Of them, 300 or so cause diseases making people fall sick. Most of them are not harmful to health. On the contrary, they contribute to the health of plants by producing plant food from the soil, nutrient recycling, organic matter recycling, breaking down and decomposition of dead plants and animals sustaining the ecosystems, and nitrogen fixation within the ecosystems are some of the advantages of fungi. Study of fungi reveals that mushrooms have hypoglycaemic, anti-cancer, anti-pathogenic, enhanced immune system activity. Fungi can also be termed as a unique source of food, fuel, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. It is also an important tool in bioremediation and biotechnology. This session on Fungal Diseases discusses in detail about food, medicinal and veterinary mycology, mycotoxicology and its diversity in numerous applications in the fields like pesticides, plants, food, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, antimicrobials, drugs within their ecosystems.

Session 14Epidemiology & Infection Control

The rise of deaths every year due to infectious diseases is causing widespread alarm and concern across the nations. Despite many effective measures being in place, the rise of deaths refuse to subside. Infectious diseases caused by viral infections, parasitical infections, fungal infections, bacterial infections, and so on. The antibiotics, therapeutic treatments, preventive measures that protect against infectious diseases are in place. Research on epidemiology and immune system has revealed diseases can be controlled and measures in place to prevent the outbreak of diseases in community is not sufficient. Much progress has to be made in controlling infectious diseases. Preventive measures such as cleanliness, hygiene and sanitisation of places like hospitals, nursing homes, healthcare facilities with disinfectants and sterilisation should be in place to control at least nosocomial diseases. Epidemiology & Infection Control is the domain of public health practices and quality healthcare deliverables. Such extraordinary measures need to be taken at a national level. This session focuses its attention on infection control methods in place and further what needs to be done more on research front, the advanced techniques to be adopted in diagnostic processes, the latest instruments and equipment available to manufacture powerful antibiotics, the role of genetic engineering, nanotechnology, robotics and so on.
