Aim and Scope

The biannual Molecular Microbiology Meeting seeks to unite scientists who study the molecular biology of microbes with a focus on prokaryotes and fungi.

The Molecular Microbiology Meeting has previously been held five times at various locations around Europe. In 2019 the meeting will be hosted by the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology at Newcastle University, UK.

The meeting will span two days and will be composed of both lectures and a poster session, allowing for PhD students, Postdoctoral Research Associates and Principal Investigators to present their work. Short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Early career scientists are encouraged to apply.
