BacPath 14

On behalf of the BacPath 14 committee, we would like to thank you for attending the 2017 meeting.

BacPath 14, The Molecular Biology of Bacterial Pathogens (September 25th-28th 2017, South Australia), was held in Hahndorf located in the spectacular and picturesque setting of the Adelaide Hills.

It is the premiere biannual molecular bacteriology meeting held in Australia. With its exclusive focus on bacterial pathogens, this meeting explored the full spectrum of molecular microbiology from fundamental research to translational applications.

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 was no exception that offered a fantastic opportunity for molecular bacteriologists of all disciplines and career stages to interact in a friendly and relaxed environment.

The meeting included 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. 

The meeting 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 was 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 hope enjoyed your time at the meeting and in Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills.
