The FoodMicro2022 Conference, organized by the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene, was held in Athens, from 28 to 31 August.
This year's theme was "next generations challenges in Food Microbiology".
We are proud to have two E-MUSE ESRs who presented at this event :
- Alina Kyrylenko (ESR13) presented on “Fermentation of plant-based ingredients using lactic acid bacteria as an emerging alternative to dairy-based fermented products”.
- Mahtab Shoukat (ESR10) presented a poster on "Impact of iron on structuration and functioning of cheese microbial communities".
