Cultivating Traditions, Current Strength, and New Frontiers

Click to Register Now!

The annual microbiology symposium, organized by the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology, offers two days filled with speakers and poster presentations. The symposium brings together microbiologists from across the Rutgers campuses in New Brunswick, Newark and Camden. The symposium has developed a strong following since it was launched in 2007 - in large part because of the outstanding alumni from Rutgers who return to campus to share their knowledge with our undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff.

Program Chairs: Tamar Barkay, Jeff Boyd, and Max Häggblom

  • Thursday, February 6, 2020 - 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
