BSPP Presidential Conference 2017 - Fungal Control and Exploitation

University of Nottingham Jubilee Campus
11th-13th September 2017


The meeting will be a joint venture with the British Mycological Society (BMS), so there will be additional interest from the parallel BMS sessions, as well as several joint plenaries. The BSPP sessions will focus on the control of diseases using genetics (including GM and RNAi), pesticides and biocontrol. The BMS sessions will focus on control of human fungal pathogens, as well as exploitation of fungi, for example in biotechnology. We are delighted to have assembled a first-class programme of invited speakers for the meeting, with confirmed BMS and BSPP speakers so far including:

Alex Brakhage (Jena); Al Brown (Aberdeen); Mike Bromley (Manchester); Ronald De Vries (Utrecht); Alan Gange (Royal Holloway); Lise Nistrup Jorgensen (Aarhus); Karl-Heinz Kogel (Giessen); Mark Lynas (Author and Environmentalist); Vera Meyer (Berlin); Bruce McDonald (ETHZ Switzerland), Richard Michelmore (UC Davis); Richard Oliver (Curtin); Neil Paveley, (ADAS), Nick Read (Manchester); Natalia Requena (Karlsruhe); Sander Schouten (Wageningen), Eckhard Thines (Mainz) and Frank van den Bosch (Rothamsted).

Please set 11-13th Sept aside in your diaries! Further updates on registration and abstract submission will follow in due course.
