9th International Symposium on the Biology of Acinetobacter

Date: June 19 - 21, 2013

Venue: Cologne, Germany

The genus Acinetobacter comprises a very diverse group of organisms that range from nosocomial pathogens such as A. baumannii and A. nosocomialis to environmental bacteria such as A. calcoaceticus. Many epidemiological aspects of Acinetobacter spp. have been elucidated in the recent past, other aspects including their role within their natural habitat, interaction with host cells, the development of multi-drug resistance, their epidemicity and pathogenicity traits are still underexplored. Recent advances in our understanding of the biology of Acinetobacter have resulted from genomic analysis of these organisms.

The increasing importance of A. baumannii as the paradigm of a multidrug resistant, often untreatable hospital pathogen has further drawn the attention of the scientific community to this group of organisms. The aim of the International Symposium on the Biology of Acinetobacter – the first meeting of this series was held in 1986 in Manchester (UK) – has always been to bring together medical and nonmedical microbiologists as well as clinicians, to stimulate discussion and collaboration, and to provide an international forum to discuss all major aspects of the genus Acinetobacter. Another important goal is to encourage students and young scientists to present their data and discuss these with experts.

The 9th International Symposium on the Biology of Acinetobacter will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Cologne in Germany. 

Travel Grants

Up to 20 young scientists, who wish to attend the 9th International Symposium on the Biology of Acinetobacter in Cologne, will be supported with a travel grand and/or free registration. A full travel grant will include full registration to the congress and a travel allowance for the amount of EUR 400 (paid in cash onsite). A certain number of grants include free congress registration only.

 Travel grants and free registrations are both conditional upon the acceptance of an abstract. For multiple-authored abstracts only the presenting author may apply for a travel grant.

The age limit for applicants is 36 years. Applications for a travel grant may be submitted only after submission of an abstract via the official abstract submission of the congress.

Over 200 Never-Before-Seen Viruses Discovered Lurking in Frogs, Fish, And Reptiles

Not only does the finding have implications for studying human virology in the future, it also shows that viruses have an evolutionary history dating back millions of years - and they evolved concurrently with vertebrates.

Moćni mikrobi – prikaz knjige Mighty Microbes – The Amazing World of Microorganisms

Skupina znanstvenika i popularizatora znanosti iz Nizozemske se s ovom idejom pozabavila kroz fundaciju Microcanoni, nizozemsku inačicu projekta naziva „Što doista trebate znati o mikrobiologiji“ još 2011. Ta verzija prezentirana je i u amsterdamskom muzeju Artis Micropia, a djelo na engleskome čiji vam prikaz donosim je korak dalje koji je ova skupina ljudi poduzela u ulozi urednika knjige s naslovom Mighty Microbes i podnsalovom The Amazing World of Microorganisms. Osmislili su građu podijeljenu u devet tematskih cjelina, a unutar svake je pet do deset poglavlja (tema) za koje su kao autore ili suautore odabrali znanstvenike koji su sudjelovali u ključnim otkrićima ili su istaknuti stručnjaci u tom području.
