In Autumn, SfAM holds the Environmental Microbiology Lecture, which brings a renowned microbiologist of international standing to London. The lecture is a great way for attendees to learn something new and to meet old friends and new acquaintances over a drink at the reception. Places for Members are free of charge but limited, so you are advised to book early to be sure of a seat. Members are sent an invitation to this event which contains a 'promotional code' to enable them to obtain a free ticket.  Tickets are available for Non-Members at £15.

Almost all countries face increased antimicrobial resistance (AMR), not only in humans but also in livestock and along the food chain. It is for this reason the Society hold a special meeting on antimicrobial resistance towards the end of the year. Places at the AMR conference fill up fast, so anyone wishing to join is urged to book their place early to avoid disappointment.
