Welcome Note

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Executive Board of the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) and the scientific organising committee, we cordially invite you to our 73rd Annual Meeting, DGHM 2021.

Due to the current pandemic, we are switching to a digital format for the first time, which is a positive temporary alternative making scientific exchange possible during these difficult times.

From September 12 to September 14, 2021, you can expect an extensive spectrum of topics from the fields of microbiology, hygiene and infectious diseases, which will be presented in plenary sessions, workshops, seminars, industry symposia and poster sessions. Internationally renowned speakers and young researchers are looking forward to presenting and discussing both basic knowledge and application-related aspects of
current research with you.

The scientific program will focus on vaccination, bacteria & genotoxicity, healthcare-associated infections (HAI)/pandemic preparedness, InfectControl2020, digitality and science & politics. More than 1000 participants are expected to attend the new digital format – you can be part of it!

Full of excitement, we are looking forward to exchanging ideas for the benefit of science and society!

With best regards

Andreas Diefenbach
