Electromicrobiology 2023

SAVE THE DATE: Electromicrobiology 2023, May 24th-26th



Many microorganisms have the capacity to exchange electrons extracellularly, either through the outer membrane or between cells within multicellular bacteria. Electromicrobiology research is continuing to yield new and exciting results, from the scale of the molecular machinery that permits extracellular electron exchange to microbial ecosystems driven by electric processes. These discoveries are leading the way towards new technical applications that will exploit electric microbes or their molecular components.

In 2023, the Center for Electromicrobiology at Aarhus University, Denmark will welcome 100 researchers to the 3rd Electromicrobiology Conference. These biennial conferences have the goal to capture the latest developments in electromicrobiology:

  • What processes, structures, and mechanisms are involved in extracellular electron transfer?
  • What are the implications for the way we understand, describe, and investigate microbial cells, communities, and biogeochemical processes?
  • How can we apply this knowledge to meet our greatest challenges in medicine, agriculture, energy, and other areas?


SAVE THE DATE: ECS Workshop May 22nd-23rd


As a new initiative, Electromicrobiology 2023 will be preceded by the Electromicrobiology ECS Workshop, a 2-day meeting designed specifically for Early Career Scientists (e.g. graduate students and postdocs). Here young investigators will present and discuss their research, get hands-on experience with selected techniques in electromicrobiology, and build collaborative relationships with colleagues and peers in an informal environment.
