Biofilms have a tremendous impact on industrial, clinical, and natural environments. The 8th ASM Conference on Biofilms, October 7-11 in Washington, DC, will provide an interdisciplinary platform to discuss the latest biofilm research. Topics include the molecular basis and regulation of biofilm formation, biofilms in natural and industrial systems, diagnosis and study of clinically-relevant biofilms, and emerging technologies and their application to biofilms.

Arrive early to attend one of the pre-conference workshops, Imaging and Quantifying Biofilms, and Standardized Biofilm Methods on October 7, 2018. A separate fee is required – registration is open!
