Registration is open for the 2017 Boston Bacterial Meeting!
For over 20 years, the annual Boston Bacterial Meeting (BBM) has brought together microbiologists from both academic and industrial settings from New England and beyond.
Last year’s BBM was attended by almost 500 researchers, representing over 100 labs and companies.
BBM2017 will take place on Thursday, June 15th, and Friday, June 16th at the Harvard Science Center in Cambridge, MA.
We are pleased to host Susan Gottesman, NIH Distinguished Investigator in the Biochemical Genetics Section at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as this year’s keynote speaker. Dr. Gottesman and her lab have pioneered studies on post-transcriptional mechanisms of regulation in bacterial systems, with a focus on the role of energy-dependent proteolysis in regulation and the role of small non-coding RNAs in regulating translation and mRNA stability. Dr. Gottesman is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She received the Abbott-ASM Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.
We hope that you can join us for this exciting cross-section of current microbiology research!
