Labroots is excited to bring academia and industry, research experts, virologists, microbiologists, healthcare professionals, and leading biomedical scientists under one roof at our 7th Annual Event in the Microbiology Week Virtual Event Series, held on September 7-9, 2021!

Microbiology Week Virtual Event Series 2021 will offer a 3-day content-rich program offering invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions and posters to explore global developments for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Infectious Diseases, discoveries in Microbiology & Immunology research to improve human, animal, and plant health, including virology, pathogenesis, genomics and epidemiology, microbial communities and biofilms, and research to find improved vaccines, diagnostics, and antiviral drugs for Influenza.

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

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. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Microbiology Virtual Week. Submit your free abstract here.

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.
