The study of eukaryotic pathogens includes such diverse organisms as intracellular protozoa, helminths and fungal pathogens. The Annual Southern California Eukaryotic Pathogen Symposium (SCEP) brings together researchers from more than 15 different labs from Southern California  that investigate the inner workings and host response to these important pathogens. It is the aim of this symposium to bring together these like-minded but individual groups to facilitate interaction and collaboration.


Our 12th annual symposium will take place on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 IN-PERSON at the Genomics Auditorium - University of California, Riverside. Registration is free and we will circulate our annual abstract booklet via email. Parking has been reserved for Lot #6. UC Riverside campus map
