Microbiology and Immunology 2018

Our 4th Annual Microbiology and Immunology Virtual Conference is now available On Demand!

Participants will explore and discover new concepts, tools and techniques to apply to ongoing research and diagnostics. Microbiology and Immunology cover an array of industries and disciplines, encompassing various research areas including pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, and space. The development of new techniques and the ability to sequence organisms without the need to grow them in the laboratory has opened up a new world of microbial diversity and complexity we know little about.

With the progress made toward learning more about the world of microbiology and disease, the need for more rapid diagnosis, increased standardization of testing and greater adaptability to manage threats from newly evolved infectious microorganisms will become more and more apparent. The combination of the new tools being developed along with advancements in basic knowledge can lead to profound changes and growth in Microbiology and Immunology.
 

Topic's for this years event included: 

  • Infectious Diseases
  • Developments in Virology, Virulence and Vaccinations.
  • New Methods and Emerging Trends
  • Ecology & Evolution
  • Applied Microbiology


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. 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.

Don't forget to participate in our Leaderboard and Scavenger Hunt to win one of our Free Science T-shirts!
