 Professor Brian Duerden CBE and Professor Eric Bolton, President of the BSMT, will chair the conference.

The conference is aimed at senior biomedical and clinical scientists, medical microbiologists and other healthcare professionals.

As in previous years, the meeting is particularly relevant for bench microbiologists to provide up-to-date information about organisms and techniques especially where there is information about new molecular technology and also to give some clinical background and context to the work undertaken.

There will once again be a comprehensive trade show and Mast will once again be supporting the BSMT at this conference

The early bird discount for BSMT is available, allowing delegates to register for just £95 until 16th September 2018 - register now to ensure you don’t miss out!
