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 signalling;
Infection and immunity;
Secretion and transport across membranes;
Antibiotics and Resistance mechanisms.
