Microbes in Medicine – a view from Twitter

Posted on November 4, 2019   by Microbiology Society

The penultimate Focused Meeting of 2019, Microbes in Medicine: A Century of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin, took place in Dublin 24–25 October. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting.

Organiser and Chair of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin, Charles Dorman, opened the meeting on Thursday morning.


The first sessions were well received by the delegates…

… as were the rest of that day’s talks.

A lot of delegates seized the opportunity to meet up with friends and colleagues.

Charles Dorman finished off the first day with a celebratory inaugural lecture.

And the delegates, speakers and organisers went for a well-deserved dinner.

Kevin Devine kicked off day two.

He was followed by a number of excellent and high-profile speakers.

Gordon Dougan finished off the Focused Meeting in style.

Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting.

And congratulations prize winners Aisling Towel (sponsored by Access Microbiology) and Vanessa de Las Heras (sponsored by Journal of Medical Microbiology).
