Program Manager, Conference Series LLC

I am Selena Parker. At present I am working as the Program Manager for Microbiology conferences which is being organized throughout the world. This year we are organizing "International Conference on Microbial Ecology & Eco Systems" during September 18-20, 2017 at Toronto, Canada. Conference theme is “ New Frontiers of Invisible Bio Systems”. This interesting event is managed in such a way to provide an exclusive platform for educators, new researchers, and learners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, possibilities, and concerns adopted in the field of Microbial Ecology. Microbial Ecology 2017 will comprise an informative and exciting conference program including leading keynote speakers, poster presenters, session speakers who will be presenting their research on the topics related to Microbial Ecology. Therefore we invite you heartedly to join us at the Microbial Ecology 2017, where you will be sure to have a great experience with experts from around the world. All the important members of Microbial Ecology 2017 organizing committee look further to meet you at Toronto, Canada.

phD Student, Facultad de Estudios Superiores Iztacala, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

I am a biologist by the FES-UNAM Iztacala, I realize the Master of Science in animal production and health FMVZ-UNAM, study PhD in biomedical sciences.   I want to address the study of bacterial biofilms, considering that the development of this field of research should culminate to find and get a muti species biofilm model in vivo

Diane McDougald

Associate Professor, Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering

Asst. Prof. McDougald has made significant contributions to the fields of Vibrio biology, bacterial adaptation to stress and mechanisms of molecular control of these responses, cell-to-cell communication, biofilm formation and interactions of bacteria with higher eukaryotes. Her group’s major research interest is on the investigation of mechanisms of survival and persistence of pathogens in the environment, and what impact these mechanisms have on virulence and pathogenicity in the host. They investigate the evolutionary drivers and consequences of bacterial adaptation to stresses, including interactions with higher organisms. Broadly, they study the interactions of prokaryotes and eukaryotes using a number of model systems to investigate the impact of predation by protozoa on microbial communities and how evolution of grazing defences drives the evolution of pathogenicity in the environment. Predation is an important selection pressure that pathogens face in the environment, and as a result, pathogens may evolve phenotypes that not only increase their fitness in the environment, but may also increase their fitness in the human host. This research platform will allow her group to test key aspects of the Coincidental Selection Hypothesis, which states that the virulence of many opportunistic human pathogens may be an accidental by-product of selection for adaptations not related to human disease.

CEO & Co-Founder, Zapnito Ltd.

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.

Science Editor, uBiome

After receiving my PhD at Utrecht University in The Netherlands, I worked at the Dutch National Institute for Health and the St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein. From 2001-2016 I worked in the laboratory of David Relman at Stanford University, where I have worked on the characterization of human oral, gastric, and intestinal microbiotas, and that of marine mammals. In 2016 I joined uBiome where we allow citizen scientists to sequence their microbiome. I also run Microbiome Digest, www.microbiomedigest.com, an almost daily compilation of scientific papers in the rapidly growing microbiome field, tweet on Twitter as @MicrobiomDigest, and scan published papers for image manipulation.
