2023 IS-MPMI Congress
July 16 - July 20
Protecting Our Planet Through Plant-Microbe Research
The 19th Congress of IS-MPMI will feature major advances in our understanding of plant-microbe interactions that will help us develop more resilient crops. The twin threats of climate change and political conflict have brought into sharp focus the need to improve the resilience of local crop production systems.
The 2023 Congress will start off with a special session focused on emerging threats to crop production in Bangladesh, East Africa, and Brazil and show ways MPMI research is addressing these challenges. The plenary program will then cover major advances made over the last four years in our understanding of molecular plant-microbe interactions, spanning from the structural biology of plant immune receptors to how healthy plant microbiomes are established and maintained, and everything in between.
