The NEMPET Meeting
NEMPET hosts a three-day meeting during the second half of June each year. This meeting is held at the Minnowbrook Conference Center in Blue Mountain Lake NY. The conference program includes an invited speaker, platform presentations and posters. It is an excellent opportunity for students (undergraduate and graduate) and post-docs to present their research in front of their peers.
The registration fee includes all meals and lodging. Attendees stay in comfortable rooms furnished in the Adirondack style, and eat their meals in a spacious dining room overlooking the lake. Meals are both delicious and plentiful. The overall atmosphere of Minnowbrook lends itself to a casual meeting with plenty of opportunities for interaction in and out of the sessions.
The focus of NEMPET is on general microbiology in
all of its many forms. Topics covered in the meeting range from molecular
studies of enzyme function to diversity of species in the natural environment.
Recent invited speakers have included: Dianne Newman, Gary King, Kurt Hanselman,
Derek Lovley, Milton Allison, David Emerson, Klaus Nusslein, Doug Eveleigh,
JohnTudor, Karin Sauer, Joseph Yavit, and Lawrence Aaronson.
NEMPET is one of the few meetings where students are encouraged to present talks.
There is no official membership in the NEMPET organization. There are no dues, and anyone can attend the meetings. We strive to reach the widest possible audience within the field of microbiology.
