Annual Applied Microbiology Conference 2017

Annual Applied Microbiology Conference 2017
The Society for Applied Microbiology would like to invite all scientists with an interest in food microbiology to attend and participate in our annual Applied Microbiology Conference 2017 on New Insights into Food Safety at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.

Registration for this event has now closed.

Foodborne diseases are a chief concern of many microbiologists as they not only affect people's health and well-being, but also have major impacts for countries’ economies too.

Although there have been some successes in the reduction of foodborne disease caused by particular pathogens, despite significant efforts the level of foodborne disease globally caused by microbial agents remains unacceptably high, and is a major cost and burden to society.

This conference will look at our current understanding of the key pathogens that are causing the greatest burden on our health and our economy, focusing on new insights into these individual agents that aid our understanding of the problems they cause.

New issues such as the transmission of antibiotic resistance through the food chain will also be presented, as will new techniques for reducing levels of disease through approaches to control and food safety education.
