EMI Lectures

The Environmental Microbiology Annual Lecture invites prominent scientists to drive debate and highlight important and inspiring topics in microbiology.

The annual lecture is an important event on the Society’s calendar, and we encourage our Members to book early to avoid disappointment. More details of the next annual EMI Lecture can be accessed via the website.

Speakers often share aspects of their scientific journey and how they’ve applied microbiology to address the challenges we face today.

While the annual EMI Lectures are unmissable events, luckily we have filmed a selection of these informative and entertaining presentations to be enjoyed at your leisure.
