Prizes Awarded by Molecular Microbiology

Molecular Microbiology is keen to support the microbiology research community and regularly awards poster prizes at selected conferences. Winners receive a year's free online subscription to Molecular Microbiology and a prize cheque.

The winning poster at the FASEB Microbial Pathogenesis meeting in July was:
