This year's event includes the following topics and tracks:

Immunology:

  • Plant Response to Disease
  • Bacterial Immunologies and Epigenetics
  • Vertebrate Adaptive Immune Systems and Epigenetics
  • Immunopathology and Epigenetics
  • Innate Immunity and Epigenetics

Infectious Disease:

  • Virology
  • Antimicrobial Resistance and Novel Antimicrobial Strategies
  • Point of Care Diagnostics: Lessons Learned from COVID-19

Respiratory Viruses:

  • Novel Respiratory Virus Vaccines
  • Genomics of Respiratory Viruses
  • Immunity to Respiratory Viruses

Microbial Communities:

  • The Microbiome in Precision Medicine
  • Biofilm and Microbial Community Contribution to Health and Disease
  • Viromes

Modeling Approaches:

  • Machine-learning Approaches in Microbiology and Immunology
  • Genomic Epidemiology

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  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.

Like the 2020 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of Labroots' most popular T-shirts.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary and discuss results with interested colleagues through email.
