The Australian Academy of Science has announced that Prof Trevor Lithgow (Monash University) and Prof Jenny Stow (University of Queensland) will jointly organise the 2011 Boden Research Conference on Bacterial Cell Biology: "New insights on host-pathogen interactions".

This conference will bring together leading experts in imaging of eukaryotic cellular ultrastructure (cryo-electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, single particle electron microscopy, super-resolution microscopy) and cell biology (protein trafficking, signaling and regulated gene expression), with experts in microbiology (both bacterial pathogens and model systems) to specifically address the ultrastructure of bacterial cells and host cells. Themes will include assembly of bacterial cell surface structures; bacterial cell compartments; spatial control of gene expression; and new methods for imaging host interactions.

A group of overseas and national speakers will present at the conference, which will be held at the Shine Dome, Canberra, in October.
