News : Abstract submissions invited for The Dynamic Fungus Focused Meeting
16 May 2016
The meeting, jointly hosted with the British Mycological Society, will celebrate the dynamic nature of fungi and provide an overview of some of the cutting edge current research in fungal biology. Key topics will include the dynamics of the fungal cell; mathematical modelling of fungal growth; cellular differentiation; fungal pathogenicity; and the evolution and adaption of fungi.
The abstract submission deadline is Monday 13 June and the meeting will take place at the Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel, Exeter, UK from 5–7 September 2016. Early bird registration rates are available until 25 July, and there are discounted prices for members of the Microbiology Society and the British Mycological Society.

The Society offers a number of grants to members at all stages of their careers, to help with costs associated with attending these meetings. For further information, please visit our grants page.
The Microbiology Society publishes two journals that welcome submissions on mycology. Journal of Medical Microbiology publishes papers covering all types of micro-organisms in medical microbiology, and submissions are invited on fungal pathogenicity. More information about the scope of the journal and information on submitting a paper can be found here. Mycology is a rapidly moving area of research that covers fundamental fungal biology and Microbiology welcomes submissions in this area.
