Session chairs discussed the innovative research presented during the meeting.

Technical Abstract: The first Biannual Cryptosporidium meeting was held March 10th-12th, 2024 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. The organizers, Dr. Boris Striepen and Dr. Chris Hunter, welcomed more than 130 attendees to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. The meeting opened with a panel discussion featuring a diverse group of researchers, clinicians, non-profit, and industry partners who offered unique insights into the problems of Cryptosporidiosis. Seven research themed sessions (“Impact of Cryptosporidiosis”, “Population Genetics”, “Genomics and New Tools for Research & Translation”,” Parasite Cell & Developmental Biology”, “Host-Parasite Interaction & Immunity”, “Cryptosporidium Metabolism & Emerging Targets”, and “Immunity to Cryptosporidium & Vaccines”) as well as two poster sessions completed the meeting. A farewell dinner in the domed Asia gallery of the Penn Museum was organized for all the attendees. In this TrendsTalk, session chairs highlight the innovative research and discoveries presented during the inaugural Cryptosporidium meeting.
