The ABX Winter 2021 Meeting

The third ABX meeting is planned for Thursday 16th to Friday 17th December 2021 at Aston University, Birmingham, running from the Thursday afternoon to the Friday morning. This will be dependent on the government guidelines relating to COVID-19. Please put the dates in your calendars!


The meeting will take a “blended” approach, whereby we will be hosting it in person at Aston University, and participants who cannot attend in person can join virtually via Zoom.

Depending on restrictions, we will need to confirm the capacity of the available meeting space in due course, therefore we will offer spaces on a first come first serve basis. The meeting is planned to be held on the Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, with dinner, bed and breakfast available for a very competitive fee.


Like the previous meetings, the event will comprise a series of 10 minute talks and a series of 3 minute “flash slides”. There will be a limited number of slots available. We would like to encourage contributions from students and early career researchers who did not speak at the previous meetings, in particular. With your permission, we will publish these presentations on the ABX website after the meeting.

If you would like to attend the meeting, or would like to give a talk or flash presentation, please email antibioticdiscovery@plymouth.ac.uk with your interest.

More details will be available in due course.
