Philippine Society for Microbiology, Annual Convention

41st Philippine Society for Microbiology Annual Convention in Cagayan de Oro, Mindanao, Philippines I was delighted to attend (and be a plenary speaker) at the 41st PSM Convention this year. I was warmly welcomed by all members of the Board of the PSM. I'd like to thank in particular, Jessica Simbahan, the outgoing president, Bee Basit, the incoming president, Percival Garcia and others for recognising me at NAIA (Manila airport) and subsequently looking after me. There were an illustrious group of foreign speakers including those from Japan (via Singapore), Sicily (via Japan and Denmark), the States (via Germany) and other European delegates from Hungary. We were entertained, visiting restaurants, the local university and its museum of Mindanao arts and crafts. I also met members from David Klinzing from St Luke's Medical Center, Quezon City, members from Mapua Institute for Technology. I shall be giving a talk at their Bioengineering conference on July 20th/2
