Molecular Microbiology Meeting

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 (All day) - Thursday, March 7, 2013 (All day)

The Molecular Microbiology Meeting for 2013 has been booked for March 6th and 7th at Waterview in Bicentenial Park, Sydney, NSW. Please put the date in your diaries.

Note that the venue has changed and we are planning a meeting over 2 days. For those travelling interstate there is accommodation nearby at the Novotel and Ibis Hotels. You can book accommodation on the registration page.

Holding the meeting over 2 days has allowed us to invite more speakers and make more space for oral presentations selected from abstracts so please plan your abstract and register for the meeting so that we can include you in the program. Closing date for oral presentations will be October 26th.

The program will include:
Professor David Livermore - Drug resistance (Keynote) University of East Anglia (UEA) and Health Protection Agency, London UK

A/Professor Leo Poon - Emerging viruses (Keynote) University of Hong Kong

Professor Tom Riley -    C.difficile (Keynote) University of Western Australia

Dr Carl Kirkwood -    Rotavirus Murdoch Children's Research Institute

A/Professor Melissa Brown - Drug resistance mechanisms Flinders University

Professor Ian Paulsen - Bacterial genomics Biomolecular Frontiers Research Centre, Macquarrie University

Dr Kerry Emslie - Digital PCR The National Measurement Institute, Sydney

Professor Eddie Holmes - Evolution of RNA viruses Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics, Pennsylvania State University

We are very pleased to have the meeting endorsed by the Australasian Society of Infectious Diseases and the Australian Society for Microbiology. We look forward to welcoming some delegates from that society to the meeting. MMM is a not for profit meeting focused on molecular microbiology. The aim is to provide a forum for discussion between researchers, diagnostic lab personnel and clinicians. You can find more details at
