The session will firstly start off with a presentation of the anticipated trends of major infectious diseases, their epidemiological impact and respective foci across geographical localities and populations. Following this, advancements in the space of vaccines will be discussed, including the formulation of carbohydrate-based vaccines which fight against hospital-acquired infections – a major source of escalating healthcare costs. Further to this, cutting-edge research in different medication classes against infectious agents will be discussed with a view towards ensuring affordability and accessibility by populations. Regarding the latter, a pertinent example for showcase is the conversion of plant waste into malaria drugs using light and air, with both anti-malarial and anti-cancer properties.
