ORDR-Sponsored Conferences

  • 20th Congress of the International Organization for Mycoplasmology (IOM), Sunday, June 01, 2014 - Friday, June 06, 2014
    Location: Federal Universidade Regional de Blumenau , Santa Catarina, Brazil
    Description: The Congress provides a unique international forum to exchange scientific findings, discuss recent research progress, identify areas requiring greater emphasis, set research goals for the next biennium, recognize outstanding achievement in the field, and promote the study of mycoplasmas to young scientists. The Congress is also significant because it creates important opportunities for career development, networking and formal international recognition of early career achievements by the next generation of mycoplasmologists. Direct international exchange of new findings on the biology, epidemiology and control of these pathogens is contributing to improved diagnostics and intervention strategies necessary to reduce the substantial burden of infectious diseases involving these organisms, and helps to excite and create career opportunities for rising young biomedical scientists.
