Welcome to the website of the 2018 Joint annual meeting of the New Zealand Microbiological Society (NZMS) and the New Zealand Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NZSBMB). It is with great pleasure that we invite members, visitors and exhibitors to join us in Dunedin between November 26-29th, 2018.

This year the theme of this joint conference is, “microbes & molecules”.

The conference will be held at the  University of Otago located centrally in Dunedin. Dunedin (https://www.dunedinnz.com/) is a small University city in the South Island of New Zealand and boasts incredible scenery and wildlife on the Otago peninsular and surrounds. It is also just a few hours to drive to Central Otago or Fiordland – some of the top tourist destinations in New Zealand.
