The 23rd annual Boston Bacterial Meeting BBM2017

June 15 & 16, 2017

Science Center at Harvard

The Boston Bacterial Meeting (BBM) brings together Boston-area bacteriologists from either academic or industrial settings. With attendance now at almost 550 researchers (from over 100 academic and biotech companies), BBM offers an exciting cross-section of current microbiology research.

The 23rd annual Boston Bacterial Meeting BBM took place Thursday, June 15 and Friday, June 16, 2017 in the Science Center at Harvard. Check back here for details on BBM2018!

BBM includes both short format talks as well as poster sessions. To be considered for either presentation, you must submit an abstract when the link becomes available. A note to poster presenters, the poster spaces are 4′ x 4′, and we request that you bring a poster that fits within these dimensions to allow enough space for your neighbors.
