Julius Schachter

The Fifteenth International Symposium on Human Chlamydial Infections will be held in San Antonio, Texas, June 19-24, 2022 and will be hosted by Guangming Zhong. 

Last year, Julius Schachter, a legend in the field of chlamydia research passed away.  As a lasting tribute to Julius, the organizing committee has renamed the Symposium to honor his lifelong accomplishments.  It will now bear his name and the San Antonio meeting will facilitate good science and have the opportunity to celebrate his life.

Offering a high quality scientific meeting covering all aspects in the field of chlamydia research, this symposium provides an excellent opportunity for specialists and trainees in sexual health, HIV medicine, public health, microbiology, epidemiology and behavioural science to share their ideas and experiences. Participants will be able to discuss the latest advances and progress in the field from the varied viewpoints of clinical practice and research in chlamydial biology, laboratory detection, public health epidemiology, and sexual behaviour.  

Participation in the symposium is dependent on the acceptance of a submitted abstract that will be evaluated by the Scientific Review Committee.  The scientific programme will feature many internationally respected speakers and will ensure a state-of-art, evidence-based and cutting-edge Symposium.
