The goal of the Mid-Atlantic Microbial Pathogenesis Meeting is to foster communication and collaboration between scientists engaged in pathogenesis research in the Mid-Atlantic region. An important aspect of this is providing an opportunity for graduate students and post-docs to present their work to a knowledgeable audience, focused in their discipline, in a relaxed and collegial environment. Each session will lead off with an invited keynote speaker followed by talks by principal investigators, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students drawn from the submitted abstracts. Poster sessions will provide an additional opportunity for participants to present and discuss their work.

The organizers of the MAMPM strongly encourage women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to participate in this conference.  Persons with disabilities can voluntarily identify any special needs on the MAMPM registration form and conference organizers will contact you and make plans to accommodate these needs.
