The Annual Molecular Parasitology Meeting covers all aspects of parasite molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, and genomics. We seek broad representation of all parasites and approaches, and presentations by students and postdocs are particularly encouraged. Typically at the MBL in Woods Hole, this year the conference will be held online around the world and in your home. A virus will not keep parasitology down!

MPM XXXI will include two concurrent session tracks to help accommodate more time zones in the live conference. This will allow us to fit the same number of presentation opportunities in a compressed schedule. Don’t worry—you won’t need to miss any talks! Registrants will be able to view recordings of all talks for 30 days after the conference ends.
