IMAV 2019 - a tick on a leaf

IMAV 2019: International Meeting on Arboviruses and their Vectors 2019

#IMAV19
5–6 September 2019 | University of Glasgow, UK

The Society is delighted to be hosting the third IMAV meeting. It will be a great occasion to come together and hear about new research and developments. As always, the event will include highly recognised invited speakers and opportunities to network with colleagues and interact with potential new collaborators.

Key topics include pathogenesis, immunology and vaccines, virus–host interactions, virus replication and vector biology.

Microbes In Medicine: A Century Of Microbiology At Trinity College Dublin

#MicroMed19
24–25 October 2019 | Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

This meeting brings together scientists who share an interest in the contribution of microbes to human and animal medicine, with a focus on recent advances in understanding pathogenic mechanisms and in the use of microbes and microbial products to treat and prevent disease. The programme features keynote speakers who are international leaders in their fields and will also give early career stage researchers an opportunity to present their recent research findings as offered oral presentations.

Key topics include the use of genomics to study antibiotic resistance and virulence, gene regulation in pathogens, antibiotic persistence in bacteria, microbiota in health and disease, and microbial surfaces.

The discipline of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin celebrates its centenary in 2019 and this meeting will have an historical dimension, together with a celebration of the strength of the field today.

#AMRmeds19
29 October 2019 | Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, UK

Researchers from a diverse range of fields, including microbiology, chemistry and botany, will be attending this pilot one-day meeting to scope what is needed in order to build an effective research network. The number of places at the meeting is limited so early registration is advised.

Microbiology Society members receive a discount when registering for events. Visit the events area of our website for further event details and registration information.

The Focused Meeting programme is determined by our membership through our proposal scheme.
