Topics in Infection: 50 years in Clinical Infection

31 January 2025, 9am - 6.30pm (GMT)

Now in its 50th year, Topics in Infection will take place in person on Friday 31 January 2025. The day will run from 9am to 6.30pm (GMT), including a drinks reception.

For this special anniversary year we are planning some great talks to help us showcase progress on key areas of infection over the last 50 years, as well as hearing about topical issues in UK infections. This annual one-day meeting is delivered as a partnership between RSTMH, Barts Health and the UK Health Security Agency. It will bring together microbiologists, infectious disease physicians, infection control personnel and biomedical and clinical scientists to hear updates on recent “hot topics” in all aspects of infectious disease.

Early Bird tickets are now available.

This event is in-person only; however, we are hoping to record parts of the event and will be looking to make that available after the meeting for a fee.
