Here’s news of two meetings being held by the Society for Applied Microbiology.
The first of these SfAM meetings, scheduled for 13th of October, is IMPACT – The Early Career Scientists Research conference. The aim of this conference is to offer guidance on how aspiring scientists can make an impact in their chosen field. “This year’s ECS conference aims to shed some light on methods of scientific impact, with a panel discussion featuring microbiologists specialising in social media, policy, journal, media and academia.” The conference offers a fantastic opportunity to network for early career scientists and early career microbiologists, with the SfAM Environmental Microbiology Lecture following the event.

The second event is scheduled for 7th of December and is the Antimicrobial Resistance Meeting with the theme of Prevention, Containment and Control. The aim of the meeting is to tackle the growing concerns regarding tackling AMR, concerns which have been shared by the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, when he said that a failure of action now will lead to an “almost unthinkable scenario where antibiotics no longer work and we are cast back into the dark ages of medicine”.
