2nd International Conference on Porphyromonas gingivalis and related species in oral and systemic diseases

PgLondon2015 has now successfully concluded with almost 150 delegates and speakers from Europe, the US, Australia and Japan in attendance for the two days of the conference, all of whom contributed to making the event a fantastic success – sincerest thanks to all of you who took part. We are also very grateful for the partnership with Colgate Oral Health Network and their generous support. We hope to see you again in two years’ time at PgMelbourne2017 (14th-16th May 2017)!

About the Conference

I am delighted to announce details of PgLondon2015: the 2nd International Conference on Porphyromonas gingivalis and related species.  Research into the periodontal microbiome continues at pace, fuelled not only by rapid advances in technology but also our increased broader understanding of the microbial communities associated with humans and their pivotal role in both the development of disease and the maintenance of health. The aims of this two day international conference are to present the very latest research findings in periodontal microbiology with complementary presentations from experts in related disciplines.  The conference will be of interest to not only the oral microbiology and periodontal disease research communities but also the wider discipline of host:pathogen interactions between complex microbiota and the human host.

Mike Curtis, London UK

Co-convenors: Koji Nakayama, Nagasaki, Japan & Eric Reynolds, Melbourne, Australia
