"Emerging and Persistent Global Health Threats: Brazil-US collaborations"

Scientific advances and opportunities through Fiocruz-NIH collaboration

April 23-25, 2022
Prodigy Santos Dumont Hotel and Convention Center
Rio de Janeiro - Brazil


Brazilian and American Scientists will presente research on:

COVID-19
Influenza
HIV
Arboviroses (Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya)
Malaria
Sickle cell anemia

The “Emerging and Persistent Global Health Threats” Symposium, promoted by Fiocruz and NIH, will take place in Rio de Janeiro in April 2022 with the objective of bringing together internationally renowned scientists, leaders in their fields, students and health professionals on topics such as Covid-19, HIV-AIDS , arboviruses, sickle cell anemia, malaria and other potential threats to local and global public health.

The event will also emphasize NIH ties with Fiocruz and other Brazilian institutions in order to expose the fruitful interactions between Brazilian and American scientists over the years and identify areas of common interest that could lead to new collaborations.

In addition to the scientific part, on the first day of the event (04/23), an orientation workshop on how to write and submit grant proposals to NIH will be taught by NIH professionals, including grant officials, scientific review officers and principal investigators.

The symposium will precede the XVI National Malaria Research Meeting (XVI RNPM).

The event will give attendees the opportunity to exhibit their work in poster sections designed to allow maximum interaction with all attendees during extended coffee breaks. We look forward to many exchanges and opportunities for new collaborations.

Participation in the symposium will require registration (free of charge) and will be limited to the number of seats available at the venue. The event is open to researchers from all Brazilian and American research institutions.
