On April 4-5 2019, the Laboratoire de Chimie Bactérienne (LCB, CNRS, Marseille) is hosting "Microbiology at a Glance", a 2-days symposium gathering promising PhD students in their final year to discuss recent and exciting developments in Molecular and Cellular Microbiology.
The invited students will be given the opportunity to present 30 mn oral presentations of their original PhD work in themed sessions where work from the various LCB groups will also be presented.
*This mini-symposium aims at promoting new ideas and interactions to expand the exciting research that takes place at the LCB and thus more globally at the “Institut de Microbiologie de la Méditerranée (IMM)”.*
The deadline for abstract submission at is set to January 31st 2019 and a scientific committee will make invitations based on the abstracts on February 28th 2019. The laboratory will cover charges linked traveling costs and housing.
