Event description
We are pleased to confirm that the 2021 UK Cellular Microbiology Network meeting will take place as an online event. #UKcellmicro2021

About this Event

Event timings: 1st March 14:00-17:30, 2nd March 09:00-12:30

The event takes place across two consecutive days and both sessions are a must-attend for anyone working on bacterial host/pathogen interactions. With an emphasis on interactions at or within the host cell, we will be focused specifically on how pathogens subvert host cellular processes and how the cell responds.

Everyone registered will receive their zoom invitation in advance of the event, with joining links for all activities.
