In February 2024 members of the Barry Lab attended Molecular Approaches to Malaria 2024 (MAM2024) conference. This conference occurs every 4 years and gives the opportunity for researchers across Australia, and internationally to present their latest advances in malaria research.

MAM2024 was held in Lorne Victoria and covered a wide range of malaria topics over 4 days. Keynote presentations were given by esteemed speakers from a range of institutes including those based in non-malaria affected countries such as the United Kingdom,  United States of America, Australia and parts of Europe as well as countries where malaria is endemic such as Kenya, Vietnam and South Africa.

Workshops covering key malaria themes allowed leading experts to interact and engage with the researchers. MAM2024 provided a great opportunity for researchers to form new connections and re-unite with inter-state and international colleagues. This was clearly appreciated and the socialising was high at conference dinner on the final night where food, drinks and entertainment was enjoyed, and so was the dance floor!
