It’s less than two weeks until the start of FEMS2019 in Glasgow (7th - 11th July), organised with our Member Society host, the Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM). FEMS2019 will bring together leading scientists spanning different fields of reserach to celebrate the best of microbiology. This congress will showcase the most recent developments in microbiology to address some of the global challenges we face today, such as antimicrobial resistance, environmental pollution and the emergence of pathogenic disease. The FEMS Congresses are the only scientific meetings at European and international level providing a unique forum for interdisciplinary dialogue and discussion between all microbiological specialties ranging from basic research to applied and across all sectors – academic, policy, business, educational, and communications. The Congress aims to inspire scientists to come together and collaborate on fresh new ideas freely without limits. We can’t wait to see as many members of the microbiology community as possible at FEMS2019 in Glasgow, one of Europe’s most vibrant and dynamic cities, that’s also been voted the world’s friendliest city.
