Join us online for the Society Showcase 2022.
Each year, the Society hosts a showcase event for early career members to come together, meet each other and interact with other members of the Society who are at different stages of their careers. The event allows us to recognise the excellent work that our community, including Committee members, Champions and Prize Winners has accomplished over the past year.
This year’s online event will feature the final of the Sir Howard Dalton Young Microbiologist of the Year Competition, featuring talks from scientists shortlisted from presentations given at Annual Conference 2022. The prize recognises and rewards excellence in science communication by a member who is either a postgraduate student or a postdoctoral researcher within two years of gaining their PhD.
The event will continue with a selection of flash poster presentations from the winners and runners up of the ‘‘People’s Choice Poster Prize’ and ‘ECM Forum Poster Prize’ who presented at Annual Conference 2022.
The event will conclude with the announcement of the winner of the Young Microbiologist of the Year.
This special online event promises to be a great celebration of the work of Society members, which everyone is invited to attend.
Each year, the Sir Howard Dalton Young Microbiologist of the Year Competition recognises and rewards excellence in science communication by a Microbiology Society member who is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher, having gained their PhD in the last two years.
