Get involved and actively shape the conference agenda
The conference will address applied and commercial applications of bacteriophage in medicine, food and biotechnology. Particular focus will be given to antimicrobial and medical applications of bacteriophage. The conference oral agenda is currently in progress; therefore, if you are interested in presenting please submit your abstract for pre-approval by email at PhageOxford@gmail.com. We particularly encourage final year doctoral students and early/mid career postdoctoral researchers/junior group leaders to submit oral abstracts, as we believe this event will provide their research an excellent exposure, critical analysis by attending senior researchers and new career opportunities.
