Infectious diseases represent one of the world's major public health problems in the world, and their control requires new knowledge, technologies, products, processes and strategies. Some approaches to reach these goals are to develop research in pathogenesis and epidemiology; to consolidate biotech platforms focused on developing vaccines, drugs/medicines and diagnostic tests; to develop qualified human resources areas of expertise; and to transfer knowledge that can contribute to the control of infected diseases to society and the corporate sector. UTokyo Forum 2013 aims to consolidate a network between USP and the University of Tokyo for same Neglected Diseases, enabling an effective integration of research groups from both Universities around a theme of high social and economic relevance.
