Microbiology Week Virtual Event Series 2023

Labroots is excited to bring academia and industry, research experts, virologists, microbiologists, healthcare professionals, and leading biomedical scientists under one roof at our 9th Annual Event in the Microbiology Week Virtual Event Series, held on September 5-7, 2023!

Microbiology Week Virtual Event Series 2023 will offer a 3-day content-rich program offering invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions and posters to explore global developments for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Infectious Diseases, discoveries in Microbiology & Immunology research to improve human, animal, and plant health, including virology, pathogenesis, genomics and epidemiology, microbial communities and biofilms, and research to find improved vaccines, diagnostics, and antiviral drugs for Influenza.

Last year's event included the following topics and tracks:

Immunology:

  • Plant Response to Disease
  • Bacterial Immunologies
  • Vertebrate Adaptive Immune Systems
  • Immunopathology

Infectious Disease:

  • Virology
  • Antimicrobial Resistance
  • Point of Care Diagnostics

Influenza:

  • Novel Respiratory Virus Vaccines
  • Genomics of Respiratory Viruses

Microbial Communities:

  • Microbiome-Based Diagnostics and Therapeutics
  • Evolution and Heterogeneity within Biofilms and other Microbial Communities
  • Multi-level Omics Data Integration

Modeling Approaches:

  • Machine-learning approaches (identifying and characterizing unannotated genes from the bacterial genomic 'dark matter')
  • Predicting Pathogen Evolution

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2023 Microbiology Virtual Week. Submit your abstract here.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Continuing Education - Labroots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 50 credits.
