Microbiology & Immunology 2019



 

Our 5th Annual Microbiology and Immunology Virtual Event is now available On Demand!  Participants can explore and discover new concepts, tools and techniques to apply to their 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. 

The tracks for this years event include:

  • Earth and Human Management of Our Microbial Wealth
    • Metagenomics
    • Microbial Communities
    • Viromes
  • Emergency Diagnostics
  • New Methods and Emerging Trends
    • New Approaches to Vaccines
    • Antimicrobrial Resistance
  • New Insights into Virology
    • Virus-Host Interactions
    • Virus-Vector Interacations
    • Advances in Structural Virology


Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  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 30 credits.
