Description
The genomic and molecular revolution in microbiology: in technology we trust (or do we?).

The 35th Annual Scientific Conference will be on Thursday 14 May 2020 at the RAF Museum, Hendon.
Title: The Genomic and Molecular Revolution in Microbiology: in Technology we Trust (or do we?).

The theme of the conference is to explore how the molecular revolution in microbiology has been useful in improving patient care. Where possible, speakers are encouraged to be provocative in their presentations with the purpose of challenging the audience to question their presumptions.
