The Microbiology Society will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2020.
To celebrate this milestone, the organisation's flagship Annual Conference will - for one time only - be extended to five days and will take place between Monday 30 March and Friday 3 April 2020.
This prestigious meeting will be held at Edinburgh International Convention Centre (EICC) in the beautiful city of Edinburgh and will include an additional, high-profile “Fleming Showcase” (Monday).
This will be followed by the standard four days (Tuesday-Friday) of scientific sessions. As ever, these sessions are designed to demonstrate the impact and potential of microbiology to address important global challenges.
Annual Conference 2020 is therefore designed to cover the breadth of microbiology research and its comprehensive scientific programme has over 30 sessions taking place over five days in a range of formats, including:
- Virology workshops
- Eukaryotic and prokaryotic forums
- Microbiology Society sessions
