This year’s meeting included presentations from eight faculty members— Drs. Mark Walter, Fran Lund, Hubert Tse, George Luo, Peter Prevelige, Christopher Klug, Janusz Kabarowski and David Bedwell.

Justement says that “faculty presentations are very helpful in letting other faculty in different areas of microbiology learn about what their colleagues are doing. It is also an opportunity to share new techniques and resources that are available within the department and at UAB.”

The time spent together at the day-long event at one of Birmingham’s most attractive meeting facilities was, indeed, informative, beneficial, and vibrant. “Hopefully some of the talks and discussions will lead to new shared opportunities for fun and exciting experiments,” says Lund.
