XV International Symposium on Basic and Applied Microbiology

September 9th, 2022

Institutional Auditorium


To celebrate the XV anniversary of the Microbiology Symposium, we will have special guests who have made very important academic collaborations with the members of the Microbiology Department throughout all these years.

This event aims to gather postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students working on Fungal Biology, Agricultural Microbiology or Applied Mycology, who are invited to submit a contribution to be presented either in a 12-minute talk or in a poster session. English will be the official language of this meeting. From the submitted abstracts, the academic committee will select four works for each session, to be presented as an oral presentation.
