The Microbiology Society President could be coming to a location near you
02 September 2019
Following on from the successful roadshow events hosted at the University of Leeds and Newcastle University earlier this year, this autumn President Professor Judith Armitage will continue her journey around the UK and Ireland to engage with members of the Society.
As part of our commitment to developing, expanding and strengthening the vast networks and opportunities available to our members and local communities, each event will provide attendees with an opportunity to:
- meet the President, Professor Judith Armitage
- engage in interactive topical related discussions
- network with local like-minded individuals
- find out why microbiology and being part of the Microbiology Society matters
- learn how you can get more involved in Society activities, including our 75th Anniversary in 2020
- meet the Microbiology Society team
Members and non-members are welcome to join these FREE events which unless stated will usually take place between 15:00– 17:00, with refreshments. Registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
If you are wondering why you should attend, President Professor Judith Armitage has this message for you.
‘Our aim is to try to get microbiologists, not necessarily (yet) members, from across the region to come together and meet. I don’t like disciplinary boundaries and believe some of the best science comes from unexpected collaborations. If we can help foster at least one new collaborations by helping people to meet, it will be worth the trip! Come and spend a few minutes over tea and cake, and tell me what you want from the Microbiology Society’
