Earlier this year, four of our Society Champions represented the Microbiology Society at the Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Biology (CURE-Infection) Network Early Career Researcher event at Cardiff University. While some of them had worked together before, this was the first time that so many Society Champions have come together to represent the Society. We caught up with Ed Cunningham-Oakes, Laura Kerr, Daniel Morse and Michael Pascoe after the event to find out a little more about their area of specialism, how they found working together for the first time and their advice for anyone who might be thinking about becoming a Society Champion.

Parliamentary Links Day is the largest science event in Parliament. Now in its 30th year, the event aims to bring together the scientific community and MPs to discuss the most pressing issues in science policy. With a jam-packed schedule and a venue to match, the theme of this year’s Links Day was “Science and the Industrial Strategy”. Dr Jessica Hedge was invited to attend by the Microbiology Society.

In a transformed quarry in the depths of Cornwall, the Eden Project celebrated the launch of its latest exhibition during the May half-term break. Invisible Worlds aims to educate the public about the many roles played by microbes in shaping our lives. Across the site, science and art are fused into an interactive experience that engages the senses and broadens the mind. We sent Microbiology Society Champion Michael Pascoe to the Eden Project to see Invisible Worlds during its launch week. Here, he writes about his experience.

The Microbiology Society has a number of Champions across the world who highlight the work of the Society and run microbiology-related events in their local area. In this post, we meet Sagar Aryal, who works at St. Xavier’s College in Kathmandu, Nepal.

A few weeks ago, the Society attended Parliamentary Links Day 2015, an event organised by the Society of Biology that brings together researchers, learned societies and parliamentarians. We went along with some of our members, one of whom is Arikana Massiah, a Society Champion and pre-registration Clinical Microbiologist at Barts Health NHS Trust. Arikana blogged her thoughts about the event for us.
