Each of us lives in association with vast numbers of microbes that influence our long-term health by colonising our bodies and the environments in which we live. This Society for Applied Microbiology one-day meeting explores the different compositions of these human and environmental microbiota and how they influence our ecosystem in many different ways.
2016’s WH Pierce Prize winner Professor Jack Gilbert (Argonne National Laboratory) will be presenting his work with Society President Professor Christine Dodd and Vice President Professor Mark Fielder at the 2017 ASM Microbe. There will also be a chance to hear from other established researchers and early career scientists who work in this important field.
Staff & other SfAM members will also be on hand to give advice on any services you may be interested in, such as grants, publishing and career development.
11:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. | Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Room 275
