Pharmaceutical Microbiology Conference

The 7th Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology Conference. The pharmaceutical microbiology industry is ever expanding; with increasing need for rapid, more efficient microbial methods and regulations being updated and revised. This conference will discuss and address the evolving issues facing the industry, such as: the assurance of sterility and aseptic practice within clean rooms, data integrity, quality control and regulatory updates, to name a few. The speakers are at the forefront of the field. Delegates will gain insight into the processes of key regulatory bodies.

Biofilms in Bioremediation review

Excerpt from a book review of Biofilms in Bioremediation: Current Research and Emerging Technologies
"describes well the basic principles of biofilm in the degradation of organic pollutants ... clearly explains the potential roles of biofilms in bioremediating soils, sediments, and aquifers ... brings together descriptions of recent tools and information ... will help the microbiologist, the biotechnologist, and the environmental engineer to develop and integrate more sustainable technologies for bioremediation of industrial wastes. It will be useful or even indispensable to teachers, students, and researchers in the life sciences, particularly of industrial biotechnology and environmental microbiology." from Front. Environ. Sci. (2017) https://doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2017.00022 read more ...
