Kevin Tyler and I are grateful for all your kind comments about
the tryps meeting (www.trypanosome.org). Thanks for that ! A primary aim
of this conference is communication between individuals and labs and I
would like to encourage everybody that attends to take the time and ask at
least one or two questions in this public forum even - if you are unsure
ask the question it may spark debate of an important point. Please kindly
divulgue this announcement.

On our third day we will be presenting:

F.R. Opperdoes and P. Michels:
Enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism as potential drug targets. 

Stefan Kunz, KeWei Gong, Roya Zoraghi, Rahel Schaub and Thomas Seebeck.:
cAMP signaling in T. brucei:Cyclases and phosphodiesterases. 

Herb Tanowitz:
The role of the mitogen-activated protein kinase-endothelin-1 pathway in
the pathogenesis of Chagasic Heart Disease. 

Mecia M. Oliveira:
Inositol metabolism in T. cruzi: a potential target for the Chagas'
