The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the initiation of bacteriophage research by Félix d’Herelle at Institut Pasteur. To celebrate this occasion, Institut Pasteur, in collaboration with Eliava Institute, is organizing a special conference in its historic location – the “cradle” of bacteriophages. The event aims at providing a broad overview of the major milestones in the bacteriophage research and will cover recent advances in bacteriophage-host interactions, bacteriophage ecology, the evolutionary heritage of bacteriophages as well as their therapeutic, biotechnological and industrial applications.
This conference is endorsed by the International Society for Viruses of Microbes.
Next to this conference, on Thursday April 27 is organized the Human Phage Therapy Day.
