We are delighted to announce the official launch of the ISME Student Chapter at the 23rd ISME World Conference to occur on Sunday, July 17, with ISME Past-President Susan O’Neill being the Guest of Honour.

There are six sessions dedicated to the Student Chapter, comprised of ISME members who are graduate students and/or early-career professionals.

The sessions are focused on professional skill development, sharing research ideas and projects, and networking with other ISME members.

Looking forward to greeting you and your students!
