From 7th to 11th of July 2019, IBioIC will be taking a stand at FEMS2019 to showcase the work of the Centre to a scientific audience.
FEMS brings together leading scientists spanning the various fields of microbiology. The congress will showcase recent developments to address some of the global challenges we face today such as antimicrobial resistance, environmental pollution and the emergence of pathogenic disease. The FEMS congresses are the only scientific meetings at European and International level providing a unique forum for interdisciplinary dialogue between all microbiological specialities from basic research to applied and across all sectors – academic, policy, business, educational, and communications.
