Location: Würzburg

Wissenschaftliche Vorbereitung: Thomas Rudel, Matthias Frosch, Jörg Vogel (Würzburg, Germany), Eliora Z. Ron, Yair Aharonowitz (Tel Aviv, Israel)

The focus of the Symposium will be on cutting-edge themes in molecular and cellular pathogenesis, and infection and immunity. These will include presentations on the application of newest technologies in infection research like intra-vital microscopy and next generation sequencing. But also most recent advances in translational research will be presented during the conference.
More than twenty-five internationally leading researchers have been invited as speakers. There will also be significant time during the conference for poster sessions and short talks to be presented by Young Scientists. Meeting grants for Young Scientists will be available.
The Symposium will be jointly sponsored by the “Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS)” and the “German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina”.

Details of the scientific programme, a registration form and information on FEMS Young Scientist Meeting Grant applications will soon be available at
