Oxford Global Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Congress 2014 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the Micro­bi­ol­ogy & Infec­tious Dis­eases Con­gress to be held on 29th & 30th Sep­tem­ber 2014 in Lon­don, UK. Experts pre­dict that the global infec­tious dis­eases mar­ket will be val­ued at over $20 bil­lion by 2015. Our unique con­gress will bring together renowned researchers to dis­cuss the major chal­lenges involved in the detec­tion, con­trol and erad­i­ca­tion of infec­tious diseases.

    On day one our experts will deliver insights into novel tech­nolo­gies for infec­tious dis­ease diag­nos­tics. Top­ics include the com­par­i­son of pathogen detec­tion meth­ods to ensure effec­tive treat­ment of infec­tions. Our lead­ing prac­ti­tion­ers will dis­cuss the devel­op­ment of antimi­cro­bials for dis­ease con­trol and meth­ods to con­trol clin­i­cal biofilms.

    On day two pre­sen­ta­tions will cover genome sequenc­ing of micro-​organisms. Our esteemed experts will explore the impor­tance of under­stand­ing host-​microbe inter­ac­tions for deter­min­ing micro­bial pathogenicity.

    Lead­ing aca­d­e­mics will also present case stud­ies on infec­tious dis­eases includ­ing: detec­tion, treat­ment and con­trol of infec­tious dis­eases, meth­ods to com­bat chal­lenges such as multi-​drug resis­tant organ­isms and infec­tion con­trol within health­care communities.

    This high-​level con­gress will attract over 175 senior experts want­ing to explore the lat­est tech­nolo­gies, hear cutting-​edge case stud­ies and net­work with their peers.


    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful con­gress series, an expert panel of over 40 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the top­ics out­lined below:

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested to sub­mit a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists from the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try and aca­d­e­mic institutions.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    Required: Poster title, abstract (200 words or less), prin­ci­pal author, organ­i­sa­tion, mail­ing address, email, tele­phone, fax and addi­tional authors. In order to secure your board space a fee of £250 plus VAT will be required. The poster should be pre­sented as A0 (841mm x 1189mm) por­trait size.

    For this oppor­tu­nity you need to be reg­is­tered as a paid del­e­gate over the 2 days. Spaces are lim­ited, so please reg­is­ter soon!
