Just to spread the word, particularly for your trainees— there will be a new conference May 1-4, 2017 that is co-sponsored by ASM and ASV. It will cover many aspects of intestinal biology (see below).
The meeting is trying to build bridges between virology and bacteriology and immunology and host physiology. We are also planning a session on model systems one can use to study the interplay between the various players (e.g. Drosophila, organoids etc). Abstracts can be in any one of those areas, they don’t have to span the whole breadth. The meeting is also for people that want to expand into one of the other areas, make connections and learn about the other topics. We have several features planned to enhance the interaction of students/postdocs with more senior scientists (e.g., poster pitch and science speed networking).
The abstract deadline has been extended to March 7. Importantly, there are 20 travel grants of $500 each available to students and postdocs.
Feel free to spread the news.
