Welcome to the 2014 Epitheliome meeting!

22nd - 25th April, 2014 - University of Glasgow, Scotland

This invitational meeting will explore the frontiers of insect epithelial biology, with a focus on devising new strategies for insect control.

With as many species of insects as all other life forms combined, it is inevitable that many insect species will impact on us in both positive and negative ways.

Resistance is appearing to all known classes of insecticide, and fewer new insecticides are appearing on the market, than are being withdrawn through tighter regulation. It is thus particularly timely to explore new ways of selectively controlling deleterious insects.

The meeting is funded by a UK BBSRC and Japan Science and Technology UK-Japan Partnering Award.
