After two years, we proudly announce that the 25th European Nitrogen Cycle meeting will finally be held in presence from the 28 to 30 September 2022, in Rome, at Sapienza University of Rome.
The meeting will join complementary expertise, spanning basic and applied research in the fields of microbiology, physiology ecology, genetics, biochemistry, structural biology, biotechnology and engineering, all with a shared interest in the Nitrogen Cycle.
The Nitrogen Cycle impact on biotechnology and biomedicine will be dissected in dedicated sessions, with particular emphasis on the role of nitrogen-based nutrients in bacterial pathogenic processes. The effect of anthropic activities on Nitrogen Cycle in terms of climate change will be tackled by merging molecular and social sciences.
On behalf of the organizing committee, we want to personally invite you to join this special meeting in Rome. We will take special care in promoting young researchers who want to discuss their results with renowned researchers either as selected oral presentations or as posters.
Beside the rich scientific program, we believe that the social activities planned will be strategic to stimulate new collaborations as well as discussions between colleagues and friends.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Rome and hope this will be a fruitful and pleasant scientific meeting, enjoining Rome!
This meeting is selected by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) to offer 10 grants (€350 each) for event participation for early career scientists.The awarded participants will be selected for a short presentation during the conference. Instruction for application are available in the dedicated page.
