BacPath 14

Due to an overwhelming demand, BacPath 14 is now sold out.

BacPath 14, The Molecular Biology of Bacterial Pathogens (September 25th-28th 2017, South Australia), is the premiere biannual molecular bacteriology meeting held in Australia. With its exclusive focus on bacterial pathogens, this meeting will explore the full spectrum of molecular microbiology from fundamental research to translational applications.

BacPath 14 will be held in Hahndorf located in the spectacular and picturesque setting of the Adelaide Hills. Hahndorf is only a short distance from the Adelaide CBD and is part of South Australia’s early German settlement history in addition to being close to many of South Australia’s renowned wineries.

BacPath meetings have been successfully held in Australia for more than two decades, and provide an ideal forum for the Australian molecular bacteriology community to communicate their latest research findings. BacPath 14 will be no exception and offers a fantastic opportunity for molecular bacteriologists of all disciplines and career stages to interact in a friendly and relaxed environment.

This meeting will include keynote seminars from four prominent international microbiologists as well as cutting-edge research seminars selected from Australia’s own molecular bacteriology community and other international delegates. Extended and fully catered poster sessions will provide ample time for attendees to stay abreast of the latest developments and thought-provoking research from across the field.

BacPath meetings regularly attract attendees from academic, research and translational institutions. A strong focus of these meetings is to provide postgraduate students and early career researchers speaking and other presentation opportunities. This meeting is no different and will also provide opportunities for career-building and networking to allow delegates to exchange ideas with their peers and to expand their professional networks.

We’re looking forward to putting on the best BacPath event yet and seeing you here in September 2017.
