The Next Generation in Infection Biology


Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Conference Overview

Infectious diseases are among the most prevalent causes of human illness and death in the world. Pathogens infect humans and all life forms on Earth, being able to cross species barriers, thereby adversely impacting human and planetary health. Fundamental research in Infection Biology is urgently needed to find therapies for longstanding and emerging infectious diseases. 

The EMBL Conference: The Next Generation in Infection Biology is a platform for exceptional early-career scientists in the broad field of infection biology to present their work and connect with the leading European institutions in infection biology. The speakers are chosen for their track record of research accomplishments and their high-reaching future plans. The audience will have the unique opportunity to experience cutting-edge science presented by the rising leaders in this field. The institutional partners will provide discussion and networking opportunities to connect and shape the future league of infection biologists in Europe.
