Annual Applied Microbiology Conference 2018
Passport to Infection - Infections of Travel and Leisure

Registration has closed.

We have a very exciting line up of speakers for you at the SfAM Annual Conference 2018. The 3-day event will be packed full of the latest research on infectious diseases, given by expert microbiologists and clinicians covering a wide range of topics that include migration, medical tourism and unusual infections.

We are especially pleased to announce that our Journal of Applied Microbiology lecture will this year be given by Professor Albert Bosch, University of Barcelona, whose specialist area is the Hepatitis A virus. Albert will be giving us some new insights from an old acquaintance.  Another talk to look forward to will be given by Natasha Hochberg, MD, an infectious disease physician with appointments in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Epidemiology at Boston University School of Medicine.

Closer to home we look forward to listening to Robert Aldridge, University College London, whose current research focuses on establishing the burden of disease and health inequalities faced by vulnerable, and often invisible populations including migrants. Robert is sure to enlighten as he discusses how to manage the health of mobile populations.

SfAM President, Professor Mark Fielder will present the prestigious WH Pierce prize to an outstanding microbiologist who has made a substantial contribution to the science of applied microbiology. The award and subsequent lecture has rapidly become the highlight of the Annual Conference in recent years, with talks from Jack Gilbert, Nicola Stanley-Wall and Brendan Gilmore all receiving standing ovations.

Our highly regarded (and often emulated) ECS Committee will be hosting some of the more social and interactive events such as the personal branding workshop, icebreaker, quiz night and perhaps a pub crawl in Brighton if we are lucky.

We will be offering a trade exhibition where you can meet our valued exhibitors and corporate members and our Wednesday night Conference Dinner is not to be missed. Take part in the great quiz on Monday night, where we think we have found the right formula to stop you guys cheating!

There will also be lunch, refreshments and evening buffets to make sure you don’t go hungry - so don’t forget to book your tickets NOW and help us make this year’s SfAM Annual Conference one not be missed.
