I am pleased to send you links to the Programme and Application form for this year’s BSMT Autumn Symposium of the British Society for Microbial Technology: Going Overboard with Microbiology – Women and Children First.
As usual, we have excellent speakers with topics to cover aspects of the microbiology of women and children:

Professor Brian Duerden CBE and Professor Eric Bolton, President of the BSMT, will chair the conference.
The conference is aimed at biomedical and clinical scientists, medical microbiologists and other healthcare professionals.
As in previous years, the meeting is particularly relevant for bench microbiologists to provide up-to-date information about organisms and techniques especially where there is information about new molecular technology and also to give some clinical background and context to the work undertaken.
