Cell–Cell Communication In Bacteria: Fundamental And Applied Aspects, 28–30 June 2022

Date: 28 – 30 June 2022

The 2022 biennial bacterial cell-cell communication meeting from the Microbiology Society will be held at Robinson College in the historic city of Cambridge. The meeting is intended to bring together researchers working on all aspects of bacterial cell-cell communication, with a particular emphasis on showcasing the work of early career researchers. In addition, a stellar line-up of established international leaders in the field will be discussing the very latest developments and insights.

Abstract submission for the Cell–Cell Communication in Bacteria: Fundamental and Applied Aspects closed on 14 February 2022. 

Key topics:

  • Evolutionary aspects of intercellular signalling
  • Molecular mechanism(s) of signalling
  • Engineering and modelling intercellular signalling; synthetic and systems considerations
  • The chemical biology of signalling
  • Inter-species and inter-kingdom signalling
  • Blocking the message; quenching the signal

Organising committee:

  • Paul Williams (University of Nottingham, UK)
  • Marvin Whiteley (Georgia Tech, USA)
  • Kim Hardie (University of Nottingham, UK)
  • Steve Diggle (Georgia Tech, USA)
  • Miguel Camara (University of Nottingham, UK)
  • Sam Brown (Georgia Tech, USA)
  • Ana Maria Otero Casal (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain)
  • Martin Welch (University of Cambridge, UK)
