Event description

Description

From its use in fermentation to make beer and bread, to its role in infectious diseases and the creation of antibiotics, microbiology has captivated interest for millennia. But only in the last decade has genomics rapidly transformed our whole understanding of microbiology. Are microbes more important to our health and living ecosystems than we thought? What could be done to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance?

Join Innovation Forum for an engaging discussion about this exciting area of research from the brightest and best leaders and pioneers in start-ups, industry and academia. This event will also provide an opportunity to connect with multidisciplinary researchers, industry, start-ups, investors and policymakers.
