The 2018 Streptococcal Biology GRC is the inaugural meeting on this medically important and scientifically rich field of research and will be held at the Jordan Hotel in beautiful Sunday River, Maine, USA, from August 19-24, 2018. The program encompasses a wide range of exciting topics on host-bacterial interactions among important human and animal pathogens from the genus Streptococcus. Invited speakers include both established and early-stage investigators who will present their latest unpublished high impact research discoveries. Encouraging participation of all scientists working with streptococci and in closely related microbial pathogenesis and immunology fields, we expect to develop this meeting into a recurring premier conference in infectious diseases research. An important goal of the GRC is to cultivate the next generation of scientific leaders including junior investigators, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students by providing a highly interactive and supportive environment to exchange ideas with current eminent figures in the field. All attendees will have the opportunity to present posters and the best abstracts will be selected for short oral presentations in the regular program. Finally, the program will include a so-called "power hour", open to all participants and designed to increase awareness and discuss issues that women and minorities face in their scientific careers. We encourage a collegial and supportive atmosphere at this Conference, with organized discussion sessions and opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings. This beautiful New England summertime setting provides an ideal environment for scientists from different disciplines to exchange ideas, brainstorm and foster cross-disciplinary collaborations. We expect the meeting to be oversubscribed so please register early.
