Welcome to the 22nd International Pathogenic Neisseria Conference

It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you to Cape Town, South Africa for the 22nd International Pathogenic Neisseria Conference, 9 - 14 October 2022. This is the first time that this conference will be held on African soil. IPNC focuses on Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae - two bacterial pathogens that pose a major public threat globally.

The conference aims to bring together passionate scientists, emerging and experienced researchers and clinicians from all continents to discuss the clinical presentation, epidemiology, population genomics, vaccine research and development, host-pathogen interactions and gene regulation of these Neisseria species in order to keep abreast of the latest developments in this field. IPNC is a great opportunity for networking and forming collaborations for future work on pathogenic Neisseria species.

IPNC 2022 will be taking place at the Lagoon Beach Hotel, which is one of the most beautiful hotels in the country. The hotel is conveniently located, being less than a 20 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport, and close to most attractions, including the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, and the winelands.

IPNC 2022 is a conference not to be missed and we look forward to welcoming our many colleagues from around the world to experience Cape Town and its surrounds at the southern tip of Africa.
