Society events and meetings
At the Society, we provide a number of high quality events and meetings throughout the year. These generally focus on a specific microbiological theme and take place as smaller more intimate meetings, allowing for informal networking and dedicated time on one subject.

A series of ‘pop-up’ events will take place at locations across the UK in 2017.
