ESM 2016 in Catania



More than 250 persons attended the 37th Congress of European Society of Mycobacteriology hold from 3rd to 6th July in the Sheraton Catania Conference Center close to the city of Catania. The conference was opened by a workshop dedicated to nontuberculous mycobacteria followed by a session organized by Industry. The official opening, in the beautiful setting of Benedettini’s Monastery, included two important prize giving; the prestigious Middlebrook award, which starting with 2015 is conferred during the ESM meeting, was granted to Stewart T. Cole while the Messner award for young researchers was given to Claudia Denkinger.

The scientific program consisted of eight guest lectures, 24 oral presentations, 12 round tables and even 234 posters (three of which were prized). The appreciated social program allowed the participants to familiarize with Sicilian art and cuisine.
