EMBO | EMBL Symposium: New approaches and concepts in microbiology

June 27, 2023 to June 30, 2023



This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually. Please see EMBL’s COVID-19 safety policy for testing and other requirements if attending the on-site event.


Symposium Overview

This symposium will cover a broad range of topics in microbiology, featuring diverse research on bacterial physiology, bacterial communities and microbiomes, bacterial–host and –phage interactions, and bacteria in their natural ecological contexts. Emphasis will be placed on novel approaches and technologies (from systems-based to single-cell) that drive each field or have the potential to revolutionise future research in microbiology.

This meeting is the sixth of its kind, part of a successful series which started in 2013 and held biannually since, becoming a must-attend event for scientists working with bacteria and new technologies. The focus remains on the interface of new technologies and new biology in bacteria, but the thematic areas change and speaker line-ups do not overlap between consecutive symposia.

This symposium aims at bridging the gap between traditional microbiology and novel technologies, by exposing microbiologists to new ways of addressing their hypotheses. At the same time, it provides a platform for systems or technology experts to get a better understanding of the important questions in the field.
