We are excited to announce that the Boston Bacterial Meeting will be back on June 1-2, 2023, at the Harvard Science Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 


We’re working hard to organize another great meeting next summer and will update the site as soon as we can. Please stay tuned for more information, and feel free to reach out to us at if you have any questions or concerns.


About BBM

BBM was founded in 1995 by two postdocs from Richard Losick’s lab at Harvard, Kit Pogliano and Karen McGovern, with the goal of bringing bacteriologists from the greater Boston area together to present their work and share ideas. BBM, now in its 29th year, has proven to be a vibrant meeting, attended not only by bacteriologists from the Boston area but from all over the country. In keeping with its roots, the meeting is being planned and organized by a committee made up entirely of students and postdocs from the Boston area. This year, the organizational committee is co-chaired by Alam García-Heredia, a postdoc in Alan Grossman’s lab at MIT, and Shailab Shrestha, a graduate student in Aimee Shen’s lab at Tufts.
