Event description
Welcome to the Inaugural Symposium on Bacteriophages and Bacteriophage-derived Technologies, 10 December 2021

About this event

We are excited to host the Inaugural Symposium on Bacteriophages and Bacteriophage-derived Technologies jointly organised by Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (NTU), Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) and National University of Singapore (NUS). We warmly invite you to exchange ideas and discuss recent advances in phage research.

Bacteriophage biology is a rapidly evolving area of study. Recent advances in sequencing technology, genomics, and bioinformatics have unravelled the diversity of biological mechanisms employed by bacteriophages, paving the way for potential applications in medicine and other areas where microbial control is desired. Key areas of research include functions for bacteriophages in the gut microbiome, crosstalk between bacteriophages and commensal bacteria, bacteriophage resistance, and bacteriophage-derived technologies for microbial control. This symposium brings together renowned experts in the field of bacteriophage biology, with a focus on the following topics:

  • Bacteriophage biology;
  • Bacteriophage-derived technologies and their applications

The one-day symposium features talks by local and international bacteriophage aficionados and other experts in the field. It encompasses keynote speaker John Chen (NUS), as well as talks by Niranjan Nagaranjan's lab (A*STAR), Karina Gin's Laboratory (NUS), Scott Rice's Laboratory (NTU, SCELSE), Andrea Kwa (SGH, Duke-NUS), Maurice van Steensel (NTU), Navin Kumar Verma (NTU), Wilfried Moreira (NUS), and many more. The day will be closed by a group discussion on the future of bacteriophage biology in Singapore. Depending on the level of interest, there will also be selected talks from submitted abstracts and virtual poster presentations.

The Symposium will be held in-person (capped at 50pax) and broadcasted virtually (Zoom). The first 25 registrations are guaranteed physical participation (subject to updated social distancing measures). More information and material for the Symposium will be shared here soon. Mark the date, we look forward to seeing you!
