Dear all,

We are pleased to welcome you to Microbes 2024 ‘Bienvenue chez les microbes’, to be held in Lille, the capital of Flanders, the birthplace of Pasteurian microbiology.

In addition to an attractive program covering the latest breakthroughs in microbiology, you will be able to appreciate the warm welcome of the people of the North, enjoy the atmosphere of the estaminets, feast on the famous Méert waffles, visit the Belfry, the Hospice Comtesse and many other gems of Flemish architecture.

The program is already shaping up to be rich and full of novelties. The Grand Palais will provide us with a venue for exciting scientific discussions, poster sessions, invited and selected oral presentations, which we will present to you as usual before the summer.

See you soon in Lille,

The Local Organising Committee.
