Anaerobe 2021 and Avian Infectious Diseases 2021: abstracts open

09 December 2020

The Microbiology Society is pleased to announce that abstract submissions are now open for two Focused Meetings that will be delivered as digital events in 2021.                  
 

Anaerobe 2021 will provide clinical microbiologists, infectious disease researchers and specialists with insights into the current and future impact of anaerobic bacteria in human health and disease. Researchers studying oral, gastrointestinal tract and female genital system microbiomes will gain key scientific insights into these important members of the microbiota and colonisers of humans.

Offered papers relating to aspects of anaerobic bacteria in human health and disease will be considered for presentation within the symposium.

The event will provide a vital online forum for the Anaerobe research community to strengthen relationships, form collaborations, share knowledge and present the latest advances and ideas about:

  • Gram-negative anaerobic bacterial infection
  • Clostridial infection and treatment
  • The human microbiota in health and as drivers of disease

New abstract submissions can be submitted for online oral and poster presentations Submit a new abstract on the event page. The deadline for new submissions is Friday 26 March 2021.

Avian Infectious Diseases 2021 will bring together the scientific community and provide a forum for discussion not only on individual pathogens but also on cross-cutting areas of relevance to multiple infections, for example, the effect of immunosuppression on secondary infections, microbiota–pathogen interactions and multivalent vaccines against several infections.

Offered papers will be accepted, with a focus on the discussions and new learnings in:

  • Molecular and cell biology
  • Molecular epidemiology
  • Pathogenesis and host response
  • Host genetics
  • Host range
  • Control

New abstract submissions can be submitted for online oral and flash presentations. Submit a new abstract on the event page. The deadline for new submissions is Friday 14 May 2021.

The respective organising committees are currently developing the event programme, which will feature plenary and video presentation sessions, poster viewing sessions and will include plenty of opportunities for discussion and networking.

Further updates, including details on registration and the digital event platform, will be provided on the event webpages and on our social media channels in the lead up to the event.
