BSPP Presidential meeting 2011: The Impact of Bioactive Small Molecules in Plant Pathology

Thursday, 15 December 2011 - Friday, 16 December 2011
Gillespie Centre, Clare College, Memorial Court, Queens Road, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England, CB3 9AJ United Kingdom

Registration deadline extended to 23rd Nov 2011

We have lined up an exciting list of speakers who will address the topics of how microbes use small molecules in their assault on plant hosts, how plants retaliate with their own molecular arsenal, and how small bioactive molecules may be identified and exploited in disease control.  

We encourage contributions from student and early career plant pathologists. The P.H. Gregory Prize will be awarded at the meeting for the best presentation made by a post-graduate or early career postdoctoral speaker, and the J. Colhoun Poster Prize will be awarded to the best poster from a post-graduate student. This year the P.H. Gregory Prize and J. Colhoun competitions will be held on 15 December, the day prior to presentations from invited speakers. A special registration rate for post-graduate members of the society is available to encourage the widest possible involvement.

Poster presentations from all delegates are welcome and abstracts must be with Steve Whisson ( by 15th November 2011.
