Microbial Stress Meeting 2023
Don't miss your chance to submit abstracts for the Microbial Stress 2023 conference in Vienna from September 19-21! This is the FINAL CALL for abstracts, bursaries, and the Early Bird registration fee, all of which must be received by 30 JUNE 2023.

Microbial Stress 2023 is a premier event focused on exploring the intricacies of microbial stress and its impact on various fields. Microorganisms have developed diverse molecular mechanisms to sense and adapt to stress conditions, driving changes in gene expression, protein composition, metabolism, and physiology. These mechanisms are essential for survival in various ecological niches, bioproduction systems, and human-microbe interactions, highlighting the importance of understanding their signals, cellular responses, and potential for strain design and stress mitigation.

We invite researchers from around the world to share their cutting-edge work and insights during this exciting gathering.

RPP11 banner
Deadline for Early Bird registration and abstract submission is fast approaching! Register before 15 JULY 2023 to take advantage of discounted rates.

The RPP11 conference, which will take place in Girona (Spain) from 17-19 October 2023, offers an overview of current bottlenecks and innovative solutions in recombinant protein production across different cell factories, from microbial to higher eukaryotic RPP platforms.

We are happy to announce that Novozymes will be supporting the poster awards!
