Young Microbiologists Symposium on Microbe Signalling, Organisation and Pathogenesis


We are pleased to announce that the Young Microbiologists Symposium on Microbe Signalling, Organisation and Pathogenesis will be held in the University of Dundee, Scotland on the 29-30th June 2016.

The Young Microbiologists Symposium is intended to bring together graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to discuss their current research. The symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for junior scientists to present their work and receive constructive feedback, to network with other students, post-docs and young PIs in the field, and hopefully to facilitate future collaborations.

The two-day programme will include three keynote addresses, a set of eight "hot-spot" poster talks and a poster session involving all participants, and opportunities for social interaction.

There will be four seminar sessions, covering the following highly topical areas of prokaryotic molecular microbiology:

Gene regulation and intracellular signalling;
Host-microbe interactions;
Structure, biogenesis and transport across membranes;
Microbe-microbe interactions.
Offered papers will be selected from poster abstracts and will be presented by students or post-docs. Attendees not giving an oral presentation will present a poster on their work.

Emma Denham, University of Warwick, UK
Alain Filloux, Imperial College London, UK
