The Recent Advances in Microbial Control conference (RAMC) was held Sunday, October 28 through Wednesday, October 31 in Alexandria, VA. The conference was a success, despite the pending storm. Fortunately, a majority of the attendees, from the United States and Europe, were able to attend. Several speakers whose flights were cancelled presented remotely so that all of the advertised papers were presented in the areas of energy, water, food safety, nosocomials as well as protection and emerging technologies.

Dr. Rita Colwell, University of Maryland, presented the keynote talk on Sunday morning, speaking on “Infectious Disease and Human Health in a Climate Changing World.”

Many thanks to chairs, sponsors, presenters and attendees. RAMC is held every two years. Tentative dates for 2014 are November 3-6.
