Every year, the Department of Biological Sciences hosts a one-day meeting to bring together the bacteriology community in the Pittsburgh and tri-state area. While Principal Investigators attend the conference, the focus is on student presentations. Post docs and graduate students present their research in short talks and posters. This will be the 10th year (9th meeting) for PBM. Plan to attend to celebrate the important anniversary and our important contributions to the field.

PBM 2015 is organized and hosted by Dr. Joseph McCormick. Funding has been provided generously by the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences and Fisher Scientific. Send inquiries to pbm@duq.edu.
