Since its inception in 2004, the Microbial Sciences Initiative 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.

Join us for the 21st annual event on Saturday, April 20, 2024.

From both the Biomedical & Environmental Microbial worlds, this years speakers are: Tanja Bosak, Ashlee Earl, Nicole Gerardo, Daniel Graham, Alex Probst, & Wenyuan Shi.

To conclude our event, the MSI Distinguished Achievement Lectures will be given by former MSI Co-Directors Colleen Cavanaugh & Roberto Kolter

With SciArt by Mark O Martin & Jennifer Quinn, Joshua Rosenstock, Michele Banks, and Noemie Matthey, and a Fermented Food Festival!

Mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks with refreshments will be provided, and there will be a 75 minute break for lunch. A poster session and a cocktail reception open to all will immediately follow the symposium.

Tickets are required for entry and can be purchased through the Harvard Box Office at $30 regular, and $15 for students & post-docs. Sales begin on Friday, March 1. 

Please note that cost should never be an issue to attend this event. Should you wish to inquire about scholarships or day-of volunteering, please email the MSI team – msi@fas.harvard.edu
