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:
