6th Midlands Molecular Microbiology Meeting (M4)

6th Midlands Molecular Microbiology Meeting

A two-day conference covering a broad range of topics in molecular microbiology and infection


Topics covered will include prokaryotic evolution, the microbiome, biofilms, virulence factor regulation including quorum sensing and RNA regulators, protein secretion, metabolomics, host-pathogen interactions and antimicrobials/antimicrobial resistance.

The M4 Microbiology Meeting aims to create an exciting forum to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration between microbiologists in the Midlands region. While attendees from Midlands Universities form the “hub” of the meeting, we invite speakers from across the UK and abroad, and the meeting is open to attendees from anywhere. This meeting is an excellent opportunity for young and established scientists to network, collaborate and exchange scientific ideas.
