Welcome to the LabRoots Microbiology & Immunology 2017 Virtual Conference! Join us in bringing the Microbiology research community together online in discovering new concepts, tools and techniques to apply to ongoing research and diagnostics. This conference is free to attend.
Microbiology and Immunology cover an immense scope, encompassing various industries and research areas including pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, and space. The development of new techniques and the ability to sequence organisms without the need to grow them in the laboratory has opened up a new world of microbial diversity and complexity we know little about. Being able to explore this biodiversity and use new knowledge for drug discovery and biotechnology applications is an exciting and expanding area of research.
With progress made toward learning more about the world of microbiology and disease, the need for more rapid diagnosis, increased standardization of testing and greater adaptability to manage threats from newly evolved infectious microorganisms will become more and more apparent. The combination of the new tools being developed along with advancements in basic knowledge can lead to profound changes and growth in Microbiology and Immunology.
Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.
Topics for this years virtual conference include:
