The topics that will be addressed during the congress are:

  • Bacteriology
  • Virology
  • Mycology-Parasitology
  • Clinical microbiology
  • Fundamental Microbiology
  • Microbial Pathogenesis
  • Microbiota
  • Antimicrobial agents and resistance
  • Food Microbiology
  • Microbial Biotechnology
  • Biosafety
  • Environmental Microbiology
  • One Health
  • Pedagogical innovations in microbiology
  • Technological innovations in microbiology

Do not forget to note the date of the congress and to block it in your diaries.

Yours sincerely,

Gérard Lina,
President of the SFM

As announced by the President of SFM, we present to you for Microbes 2022… ‘La microbiologie dans tous ses états’. An immersion in microbiology in the heart Montpellier, cradle of medicine, where the oldest faculty of medicine in the western world was born.

In addition to a very attractive program, you will have the opportunity, before and after the congress, to take a slight ‘side step’ to enjoy the many activities in the historic centre, just a few minutes away from the Corum, Montpellier’s congress centre.

A rich and diverse program, dense, for sure, and exciting, thanks to the invited contributors, your oral presentations and your abstract that we will receive until summer 2022. Without prejudging what the scientific program will be, the national and local Organising Committees have taken care to satisfy the wishes you expressed at the end of Microbes 2021, with plenary sessions and numerous parallel sessions, reflecting microbiology in all its diversity. The Microbes 2022 program that we are proposing to you will therefore be strongly inspired by that of the previous Microbes 2021 congress in Nantes, with the following highlights:

  • ‘Carrières en Microbiologie’ forum for young microbiologists
  • Thesis and poster prizes
  • The voice of industry
  • The photo competition
  • The educational area

Welcome to Montpellier and Microbes 2022… ‘La microbiologie dans tous ses états’.

The national and local organising committees.
