Microbiology & Immunology 2016 features informative presentations from keynote speakers and experts including; Dr. Peter Palese, Dr. Amy Leber, Dr. Marilyn Roossinck, Dr. Dan Diekema, Dr. Matthew Fields, and Dr. Jack Gilbert. Check out the virtual conference to view these and other great speakers at your convenience.
Microbes have been around longer than anything else and are one of the most abundant organisms on Earth. In fact, there are more microbes on one person’s hand than there are people on the planet. Studies of the microbiome have been successful in teaching us more about the roles microbes play in human health and disease. Microbiology & Immunology 2016 highlights new research in this area as well as updates on emerging infection investigations and new technologies used for microbe testing.
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.
By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free Continuing Education (CE) and/or Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation.

Peter Palese is a Professor of Microbiology and the Chair of the Department of Microbiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. His research is in the area of RNA-containing viruses with a special emphasis on influenza viruses. Specifically, he established the first genetic maps for influenza A, B, and C viruses, identified the function of several viral genes, and defined the mechanism of neuraminidase inhibitors (which are now FDA-approved antivirals). He was also a pioneer in the field of reverse genetics for negative strand RNA viruses, which allows the introduction of site-specific mutations into the genomes of these viruses. This technique is crucial for the study of the structure/function relationships of viral genes, for investigation of viral pathogenicity and for development and manufacture of novel vaccines. An improvement of this technique has been effectively used by him and his colleagues to reconstruct and study the pathogenicity of the highly virulent, but extinct, 1918 pandemic influenza virus. Work in collaboration with Dr. Adolfo Garcia-Sastre has revealed that most negative strand RNA viruses possess proteins with interferon antagonist activity, enabling them to counteract the antiviral response of the infected host. In recent years most of the efforts by Dr. Palese and by his collaborators at Mount Sinai, Dr. Adolfo Garcia-Sastre and Dr. Florian Krammer, have been directed at developing a Universal Influenza Virus Vaccine. Since the beginning of the year there has been a shift in directions as work on COVID-19 has become central to the efforts by Dr. Palese. Dr. Palese is a Member of the National Academy of Sciences, a Member of the National Academy of Medicine, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors
