Join our President and Microbial Genomics Editors in Cambridge to network with local microbiologists

04 May 2023


The second President’s Roadshow of 2023 will take place on Tuesday 12 September at Selwyn College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.

The event will be organised by Éva Bernadett Bényei (University of Cambridge, UK, Early Career Microbiologists Forum Executive Committee member and Impact and Influence Committee ECM representative), Dr Josie Bryant (Wellcome Sanger Institute, UK and Microbial Genomics editor), Professor Sam Sheppard (University of Oxford, UK and Microbial Genomics Editor-in-Chief) and Dr Lucy Weinert (University of Cambridge, UK and Microbial Genomics editor). It will be a great opportunity to meet our President, Professor Gurdyal S. Besra, and members of the Microbial Genomics Editorial Board, whilst also networking with microbiologists in the local area.

During the Roadshow, the President will share insights into his successful career in microbiology and his journey as a Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) researcher. There will be a chance to hear about opportunities to get involved with the Society, including our Early Career Microbiologists’ Forum and grants scheme. Members of the Microbial Genomics Editorial Board will also be available to answer any questions you may have about the journal and Publishing for the Community.

For the first time at a Roadshow, there will also be a panel discussion about moving from academia to industry, particularly relevant for anyone interested in making a career move. The event could be the perfect opportunity find your next collaborator!
