15 February 2017
Students and undergraduates who took part in the Microbiology Society's Antibiotics Unearthed programme in late 2016/early 2017 will be showcasing their work at our Annual Conference 2017, taking place from Monday 3 April to Thursday 6 April at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), UK. This special poster session will be held during the lunchtime and afternoon breaks on Monday 3 April.
Two students selected from each participating school or university will describe their experiences searching for antibiotics and present posters detailing their findings. This year's participating schools come from Dundee, Gloucester, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and Kent. The Undergraduate Programme is represented by students from the Cork Institute of Technology, University of Glasgow, Nottingham Trent University, Royal Veterinary College, University of South Wales and University of Warwick.
Antibiotics Unearthed gives students and educators in the UK and Ireland the opportunity to work with scientists to discover new antibiotics from soil bacteria.
You can read further about Antibiotics Unearthed on our website. Applications have recently opened for the 2017/2018 intake of participants for both the School Partnership and Undergraduate Programme, and close at the end of April 2017.
If you have not yet booked your place at the Conference, make sure to register by Thursday 16 March to take advantage of the early bird rates. You can also book to attend our social programme events at the same time, but be quick – spaces are limited and they are filling up fast.
