The UK Cellular microbiology network meetings were started in 2019 and are a must-attend for anyone working on host-pathogen interactions. With an emphasis on interactions at or within the host cell, this meeting will focus on how pathogens subvert host cellular processes and how the cell responds to invasion. The meeting will bring together the host-pathogen interaction community, particularly from the UK, to provide a network to foster collaboration and interchange across the various pathogens under study.

This event is organised by leading researchers from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University College London, Kings College London and Sheffield University.

Please note that this event starts from 12:00 on 19 June, and ends at 15:00 on 20 June (accommodation not provided).


We are delighted to announce two leading experts who will be speaking at the event. 

  • Pascale Cossart, Emeritus Professor at the Pasteur Institute and Secrétaire Perpétuel de l’Académie des Sciences
  • Felix Randow, Group leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.

Attendees are welcome to submit proposals for talks via the registration form.
