Since its inception in 2004, MSI has sponsored and hosted an annual symposium for those in the Harvard and greater Boston communities. The spring event showcases magnificent research across a breadth of microbe-centric topics spanning environmental and biomedical sciences. Welcome to the microbial world!

This year's symposium features speakers from both the Biomedical & Environmental Microbial worlds. 

John F. Brooks II:
Circadian Clock Regulation at the Host-Microbe Interface
Libusha Kelly: Phage Ecology in the Human Body
Sophie Helaine: Salmonella Persisters During Infection
Karla J. F. Satchell: Vibrio MARTX Toxins: M is for Multifunctional!

Karthik Anantharaman: (Re)defining the Roles of Viruses in Microbiomes
Otto X. Cordero: How the Ocean Digests Complex Organic Matter: An Eco-Evo Perspective
Robinson W. ("Wally") Fulweiler: All the Nitrogen Fixation We Cannot See
Andrea Giometto: Evolutionary Adaptation of Non-Motile Cells to Range Expansion

Mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks with refreshments will be provided, and there will be a 75 minute break for lunch mid-day.
A reception will immediately follow the symposium at Northwest Lab.

Tickets are FREE and open to all microbe-curious parties through the Harvard Box Office.
Registration for the symposium is strongly encouraged in advance of the event, but will also be taken at the door.
Advance registration for the reception is necessary. Please opt for the Symposium + Reception ticket if you are planning on attending both.
