Professor McInerney has been invited to speak at the International Union of Microbiology Societies annual meeting in Montréal, Canada from July 27th-August 1, 2014.
This meeting is collectively known as the International Congress of Microbiology and it consists of three separate congresses: the XIVth International Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology, the XVIth International Congress of Virology and the XIVth International Congress of Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology.
This is an exciting meeting with which to be involved, since it normally attracts more than 3,000 delegates and this year, Nobel Prizewinners Peter Doherty and Aaron Ciechanover will be giving plenary lectures.
Prof. McInerney will be speaking in the XIVth International Congress of Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology and will speak about his use of yeast data to make inferences about the origins of the eukaryotic cell.
