Events and workshops
The Microbiology Society runs policy events in the UK and Ireland. Leading microbiologists are invited to give short presentations about developments in their field of research. These talks highlight the policy issues and deliver the key facts.
Politicians are encouraged to participate in debate and discussion with scientists and engage with exhibiting organisations about the work that they do.
