3rd International Conference on

Epidemiology and Public Health


Rare Diseases and Drug Development

Rare diseases affect small percentage of the population in recent years.  Around 80% of rare diseases are genetic in origin. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s symposium on Drug Discovery for Rare Diseases will bring together leading scientists, clinicians, executives and experts who are involved in finding new drug targets and drug modalities for treating rare disorders. This unique one-day event will encourage people from diverse backgrounds to discuss potential opportunities.

Epidemiology and Anthropology

Relation between Anthropology and medicine features a long and turbulent history. Supported empirical examples, this paper describe variety of philosophy lessons we've got learned through our expertise of cross-disciplinary collaboration. Though vital of each thought medicine and medical social science, our analysis focuses on the implications of addressing every discipline’s main philosophy variations, whereas addressing the goal of adopting a broader social approach to health improvement.

General Public Health Track

The General Public Health Track gives students a solid foundation in the five core areas of public health: biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental health, health policy & management, and socio-behavioral sciences. In addition, students complete a practicum and master’s thesis.

Research on Medicine and Vaccine for Covid-19

COVID-19 has claimed the lives of about 18 million people. Researchers are working around the clock to better understand, cure, and finally eradicate COVID-19 and the sickness that comes with it. WHO and its partners are dedicated to developing COVID-19 vaccines as quickly as possible while maintaining the highest safety requirements. Vaccines go through several stages of research and testing - clinical trials typically have three phases, the last of which is aimed to examine the product's capacity to protect against disease, known as effectiveness. Each phase evaluates the level of risk. Vaccines have previously been developed through a sequence of steps that can take years to complete. Given the critical need for COVID-19 vaccines, enormous financial investments and scientific collaborations are now transforming vaccine development.

Vaccines and Vaccination

Vaccination is a simple, safe, and efficient technique to protect yourself from deadly diseases before they infect you. It strengthens your immune system by utilising your body's own defences to create resistance to specific pathogens. Vaccines teach your immune system to make antibodies in the same way that it does when you're exposed to a disease. Vaccines, on the other hand, do not cause disease or put you at danger of complications because they only include killed or weakened forms of pathogens like viruses or bacteria. Vaccines interact with your body's natural defences to create protection, lowering your risk of contracting a disease. Your immune system reacts when you receive a vaccine. As a result, the vaccination is a smart and safe technique to induce an immune response in the body without producing illness. Our immune systems are programmed to recall information. We are usually protected against a disease for years, decades, or even a lifetime after receiving one or more doses of a vaccine.

Nosocomial Infections & Control

A subset of infectious disorders obtained in a health-care facility is known as nosocomial infections, sometimes known as health-care-associated or hospital-acquired infections. The infection cannot be present at the time of admission; rather, it must develop at least 48 hours after admission to be deemed nosocomial. These infections can cause major complications such as sepsis and even death. The intensive care unit (ICU), where doctors treat critical disorders, is one of the most common wards where HAIs arise. A HAI affects about one out of every ten persons hospitalised to a hospital. They're also linked to high rates of morbidity, mortality, and hospitalisation. Infection control strategies, monitoring antimicrobial use and resistance, and implementing antibiotic control policies can all help to prevent nosocomial infections. At both the national and international levels, an effective surveillance system can help. To prevent and control nosocomial infections, all stakeholders must work together.

Parasitology & Infectious Diseases

Parasites are living things that eat and survive off of other living things, such as your body. Contaminated food or water, an insect bite, or sexual interaction are all ways to obtain them. Some parasite infections are simple to treat, while others are not. Parasites range in size from microscopic one-celled organisms known as protozoa to large worms visible to the human eye. Human parasites are parasitic parasites that infect people. Parasitic diseases can affect almost every living creature, including plants and warm-blooded animals. Parasitology is the study of parasitic diseases, as well as infections caused by fungus and bacteria.

Germs, also known as microorganisms, can be found in the air, soil, and water. Germs can be found on your skin and in your body. Many of them are safe, and some of them can even be beneficial. However, some of them have the potential to make you sick. Infectious diseases brought on by germs.

Infection, Immunity and Inflammation

The immune response is your body's way of recognising and defending itself against bacteria, viruses, and other potentially harmful substances. Antigens are recognised and responded to by the immune system, which defends the body from potentially hazardous chemicals. Antigens are substances on the surface of cells, viruses, fungi, and bacteria that are usually proteins. Antigens include non-living entities such as poisons, chemicals, medications, and foreign particles (such as a splinter). Antigen-containing compounds are recognised by the immune system, which destroys or attempts to destroy them. Inflammation is one of the major mechanisms that alerts the immune system, but when this mechanism is disrupted, a long-term chronic inflammation develops, which is likely to be harmful to the host. An imbalance of circulating inflammatory chemicals is associated to the majority of age-related illnesses.

Plants Diseases and Fungal Infection Control

A plant disease is a disruption or modification of a plant's normal state that disrupts or affects its important functions. Plants of all kinds, wild and cultivated, are susceptible to illness. Although each species is prone to specific diseases, there are only a few of them in each situation. Plant diseases vary in occurrence and prevalence from season to season, depending on the pathogen present, environmental circumstances, and the crops and kinds produced. Some plant kinds are more susceptible to disease outbreaks, while others are more resistant. Plant diseases have been known since before the beginning of known records. Plant disease losses can lead to famine and starvation, especially in less-developed nations where disease-control technologies are restricted and yearly losses of 30 to 50 percent for important crops are not uncommon.

Ebola and Zika Viral Infections

Ebola virus disease (EVD), also known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever in humans and other primates, is a serious, frequently fatal sickness. Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is a devastating disease that affects both humans and nonhuman primates. After becoming infected with the virus, symptoms often appear two to three weeks later. Fever, sore throat, muscle soreness, and headaches are generally the first signs. Vomiting, diarrhoea, dermatitis, and reduced liver and renal function are common side effects, and some people bleed internally and externally as a result. The disease kills between 25% and 90% of people affected, with an average death rate of 50%. The most common cause of death is shock from fluid loss, which happens six to 16 days after the first symptoms show. Direct contact with infected body fluids, such as blood from infected humans or other animals, or contact with items that have recently been contaminated with infected body fluids, is how the virus spreads.
