The 26th Annual Boston Bacterial Meeting


Harvard Science Center

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

The 26th annual Boston Bacterial Meeting is postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will announce the revised date for BBM2020 at a later time.

BBM includes both short format talks as well as poster sessions.  Abstract submission will open soon.  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.

If you have not attended BBM previously and wish to receive email alerts about registration and deadlines, please email the organizers at to be added to our mailing list.
