The UK cellular microbiology meetings
The UK Cellular microbiology network meetings were started in 2019 and aim to be a must-attend for anyone working on host-pathogen interactions. With an emphasis on interactions at or within the host cell, we will focus specifically on how pathogens subvert host cellular processes and how the cell responds. While attendees from any country are most welcome, the meetings are intended to bring together the disparate host-pathogen interaction community in the UK and to provide a network to foster collaboration and interchange across the various pathogens under study.
We have two great keynote speakers (see below), but the majority of the talks (15 mins) will be delivered by early-career researchers. We will also have a vibrant poster session and flash talks (3 mins) selected from the posters. There are cash prizes for both the best talks and posters!
This year, to provide more time for networking, we will be holding the meeting over 2 days (21/22nd April). We hope everyone will join us for the overnight stay and dinner.
The cost of registration will be confirmed shortly, but will be inexpensive to encourage ECRs and whole labs to participate.
