Biofilms and Microbiomes: Global Impact on Public and Ecosystem Health, 11-13 October 2022

Microorganisms form diverse structures and communities, including biofilms and microbiomes, and they have important functions in human, animal and ecosystem health. 

The Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) hosted their first Nature conference on environmental microbial biofilms and human microbiomes: drivers of future sustainability in 2017. The conference and the associated masterclass attracted around 250 onsite participants. Following this success, SCELSE has entered into an agreement to host their second Nature conference in October 2022.
