2019 Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Annual Symposium
We are very pleased to announce that this year's Symposium will return to the newly remodelled conference suite at the Royal College of Physicians on Queen Street.
As in previous years we will be presenting a showcase of the world-class infectious disease research in Edinburgh, and very much hope that you will be able to join us.

Ker Memorial Lecturer - Sharon Peacock
We are delighted that Professor Sharon Peacock from University College London will give the Ker Memorial Lecture.
My research group consists of PhD students and early and mid-career postdoctoral scientists who share a passion for microbiology.
The range of work that we undertake is relatively broad, but is underpinned by questions that are of direct relevance to human and animal health. This includes work in the UK and overseas.
Studies into antimicrobial resistance are an important (but not sole) focus of our work.
As a group leader, I try to create the right environment to encourage and mentor people into independent careers, and from there to roles as future research leaders.
