The Yeast Products and Discovery meeting is open to anyone with an interest in yeast and microfungal research. It covers the latest discoveries on how yeast and microfungal products are used in industry, including alcohol, food, biofuel, cosmetic and textile production. It also encompasses the latest research on the impact of microfungi in agriculture and food security, how fungi cause disease in both medical and agricultural settings which impact human health and food security, how fungi become drug and pesticide resistant and which of their components are being targeted in new drug discovery. The meeting is unique in that it provides a cross-disciplinary environment to update on current developments, bringing together scientists and students from both industry and academia. Event details

Partnering with the Rotary Club of Sydney since 2012, Professor Peter McMinn and his team from the University of Sydney took on the project aimed at eliminating Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) and to substantially reduce the incidence of intestinal worms in children.
The country is on the right track to eliminate LF by 2020. There has been a nationwide reduction in the prevalence of worm infection of 63% in school-aged children. High intensity infections have been virtually eliminated from the Timorese population and results suggest that full elimination of such infection is achievable over the remainder of the program.
