Subject Line: Invitation to Microbiology & Infectious Diseases Asia Congress 2014, 10th & 11th June 2014, Singapore

Oxford Global would like to invite you to attend the Microbiology & Infectious Diseases Asia Congress 2014 (, 10th & 11th June 2014, Singapore. This event is an executive platform for experts working in microbiology, bacteriology, mycology, virology and parasitology in Asia Pacific.

As global concern grows over drug-resistant infections and the prevalence of infectious diseases, researchers are looking to enhance capabilities for pathogen detection, infection diagnosis and genomic analysis of disease-causing micro-organisms. The congress brings together leading experts in the field of microbial genomics, clinical microbiology, infectious diseases and diagnostics, to discuss ground-breaking technologies and game-changing case studies.

The event will feature over 50presentations and case studies that focused on the key developments in clinical microbiology, microbial genomics and infectious disease diagnostics.

Including 4 interactive streams:

  • Detection Technology & Molecular Diagnostics
  • Clinical Microbiology
  •            Microbial Genomics
  •             Infectious Diseases
