Microbiology & Immunology 2016 features informative presentations from keynote speakers and experts including; Dr. Peter Palese, Dr. Amy Leber, Dr. Marilyn Roossinck, Dr. Dan Diekema, Dr. Matthew Fields, and Dr. Jack Gilbert.  Check out the virtual conference to view these and other great speakers at your convenience.

Microbes have been around longer than anything else and are one of the most abundant organisms on Earth. In fact, there are more microbes on one person’s hand than there are people on the planet. Studies of the microbiome have been successful in teaching us more about the roles microbes play in human health and disease. Microbiology & Immunology 2016 highlights new research in this area as well as updates on emerging infection investigations and new technologies used for microbe testing.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. 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.
