Lakeside Conference on Protein Toxins and Effectors 2024

Announcing the 2024 #LakesidePTE conference, a meeting focused exclusively on the topic of Microbial Protein Toxins and Effectors. This four day conference to be held in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in the Fall of 2024 will feature scientific discussion on secreted toxins and effectors, focusing on mechanisms and structure. Topics will include cytotoxic and cytopathic effects on eukaryotic cells, but also interbacterial and interkingdom competition between microbes.

  • The conference will feature extensive opportunities for presentations by attendees alongside keynote addresses and invited talks.
  • Meeting registration includes scientific program, meals, and social events to encourage the scientific toxin biology community to interact. Shuttle and housing information will be available by mid spring.
  • Hybrid option to view live streamed oral presentations is available for all those who cannot attend in person but want to join the community.

In-person Conference registration available up to September 28 or until capacity is met.
