The Microbiology Society is delighted to be delivering Microbiology Society Annual Meeting in Ireland in October 2023.
The Irish Division of the Microbiology Society invites you to join us in Athlone, for a one and a half day meeting that is focussed on bringing people together, building new relationships and reaffirming those already established. At the meeting we will learn about some of the fantastic microbiology research that is happening on the island of Ireland across a diverse range of topics, reflecting the idea that interdisciplinarity can broaden horizons and open new doors to breakthroughs. Microbiology in Ireland has always been strong and we would like a conference such as this to reflect that strength while at the same time acting as a meeting place to encourage new collaborations and new ideas to flourish. It will also provide a range of opportunities for early career researchers to present their work in offered papers, flash talks and posters.
There are excellent rates on accommodation for early registrants and very competitive registration costs. There is also a travel bursary available to make attendance easier.
We encourage you to book early as places are limited and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hodson Bay Hotel in October!
