International HFMD Conference 2016 (25-26 July 2016, Singapore)
International HFMD Conference 2016
Date: 25-26 July 2016, Singapore
Venue: Matrix, Biopolis

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) is a common and highly contagious infectious disease, present all year round with thousands of reported cases worldwide. There are seasonal outbreaks around the world, mainly in Singapore and Malaysia, and increasingly in other Asian, European and American countries as well. Affecting mainly children, those afflicted suffer from highly infectious blisters on their mouths, hands and feet, a mild fever which causes discomfort and, in some of the worst cases, possible complications in the brain and heart.

This event aims to foster interaction and collaborations between different countries in translational research to fulfill the unmet clinical needs in the management of HFMD. Scholars and healthcare practitioners from Singapore and around the globe gathered at HFMDIC2016, and the conference highlighted the latest developments of HFMD research with regards to vaccine development, host-pathogen interaction, epidemiology and clinical perspectives.

In addition, an educational session (public outreach program) that is open to public was held on 26 July, specifically targeted at management personnel from local childcare centers, to educate them on HFMD and effective ways of managing HFMD outbreaks.

HFMDIC2016 is co-organised by the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), part of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Singapore, the Consortium of Hand Foot Mouth Disease/Enterovirus 71 Studies in Asia (CoHESIA) and the Singapore Society of Microbiology and Biotechnology (SSMB).
