Labroots’ Microbiology Virtual Week, 6-8 September 2022

Labroots is excited to bring together academia and industry, research experts, virologists, microbiologists, healthcare professionals, and leading biomedical scientists under one roof at their 8th Annual Microbiology Virtual Week, held from 6-8 September 2022.

Microbiology Virtual Week 2022 offers a 3-day content-rich program with invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions, and a virtual poster hall to explore global developments in interdisciplinary microbiology. Discussions will cover the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases and new discoveries that have the potential to improve human, animal, and plant health. Additional topics range from virology, pathogenesis, genomics, and epidemiology to microbial communities and biofilms, to research into improved vaccines, diagnostics, and antiviral drugs for Influenza.

NBIC Research Fellow, Dr Shaun Robertson from the University of Nottingham will be presenting his talk, ‘Polymicrobial Biofilms: The Importance of Building Better Biofilm Models for Research Translation’ at the event on Wednesday 7 September 2022. View Shaun’s abstract here.
