The discipline of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin celebrates its centenary in 2019 and this meeting will mark the occasion by focusing attention on the significant contributions that have been made by the College to microbial sciences. The meeting will be a celebration of the strength of microbiology today and the unifying scientific theme of the meeting will be Microbes in Medicine.
The meeting will bring together scientists and medical practitioners with an interest in pathogenic mechanisms and in the use of microbes and microbial products to treat and prevent diseases. Highlights of the meeting will include sessions on recent advances in the application of genomics to study antibiotic resistance and virulence in pathogens, persister cells, gene regulation in pathogens and microbial cells surfaces. The importance of the human microbiota and how it differs between healthy and diseased states will also be explored.
This Focused Meeting will take place from 24-25 October 2019 at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
