Women and Children First in Microbiology

Following on from a very successful Annual Scientific Meeting held in May, the British Society for Microbial Technology (BSMT) will hold its Autumn Symposium at the Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool, next month (Friday 19 October). The Going Overboard with Microbiology – Women and Children First scientific programme will be supported by an exhibition comprising 17 commercial sponsors.

The Autumn Symposium will include an overview of the topic by Dr Andrew Riordan (Alder Hey Hospital, Liverpool); Lung infection microbiota in cystic fibrosis by Professor Chris van der Gast (Manchester Metropolitan University); Group B streptococci and other neonatal infections by Dr Jim Gray (Birmingham Children’s Hospital); Urinary tract infection and the urinary microbiome by Dr Robin Howe (Public Health Wales); Evaluation of the Pertussis Immunisation Programme for pregnant women by Dr Gayatri Amirthalingam (Public Health England [PHE] Colindale); and The vaginal microbiome and sexually transmitted infections by Professor Janneke van de Wijgert (University of Liverpool).

Full details of the Autumn Symposium may be found on the BSMT website.
