We have created a collection of presentations from Society-organised events as well as summaries from topic-specific workshops.
Please find a short description of the presentations below.
The Journal of Medical Microbiology (JMM) monthly seminar series is designed to showcase high-quality and timely research from the journal’s key authors. JMM welcomes everything from laboratory research to clinical trials, including bacteriology, virology, mycology, and parasitology. The JMM seminars will reflect this same comprehensive scientific content.
Queer in Microbiology: A Conversation was panel discussion event organised by a group of our members to celebrate LGBTQ+ STEM Day in November 2022.
The event included discussions from LGBTQ+ scientists representing different career stages, both in academia and the biotech industry. Panel members and organisers talked about the challenges that LGBTQ+ researchers face in their careers, and how they can overcome these obstacles through community-building and learning from leaders in the field.
Get involved: Shadowing Scheme was a special event chaired by our President, Professor Judith Armitage and General Secretary Mark Harris and focused on our Council and Committees Shadowing Scheme.
Now in its fourth year, our Council and Committees Shadowing Scheme gives members an exclusive opportunity to gain insight into the inner working of the Society. By experiencing at first hand the activities and decision-making processes of key governing groups of the organisation, members can add to their CV, gain a wealth of knowledge and behind-the-scenes information, and network with other microbiologists.
To complement the scientific programme during our Annual Conference, the Society hosts Essential Skills sessions designed to provide delegates with tools needed to advance in their career and enhance their professional skills in microbiology.
- Managing a research laboratory
- Staying resilient in your career
- CV workshop
The Teaching Microbiology in Higher Education Symposium was established to bring together teaching-active members in a sharing network. Previous Symposia have included demonstrations of innovative teaching practices and ways of creating a supportive and stimulating microbiology degree.
- Microbiomes Underpinning Agriculture
- Microbiome Methods Workshop: Summary and Presentations
Focused Meeting 2018: Microbiomes Underpinning Agriculture took place in Cork, Ireland, between 1-2 October 2018. You can download the poster abstracts book on the event page. Please login to MiSociety to access a summary of the Microbiome Methods Workshop and presentation slides.
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.
Finalists shortlisted from oral and poster presentations at Annual Conference 2022 presented their research to compete for the award, which were judged by a panel chaired by Sarah Maddocks, co-Chair of the Sustainability Committee, and comprised of representatives of the Society’s Divisions.
