Welcome to the JSMC

The Jena School for Microbial Communication (JSMC) at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena is not only an Excellence Graduate School, but also a lively network of scientists from a broad variety of natural & life sciences institutes and an umbrella organization for three Research Training Groups in Jena. The JSMC was first awarded funding within the German Excellence Initiative in 2007. In June 2012 the Excellence Status of the JSMC was confirmed and funding for an additional six years was granted to the Graduate School. Since 2019 the JSMC is funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation.

Today, JSMC hosts a total of about 130 doctoral researchers. Their research projects are situated at the numerous institutes that make up the JSMC network, including institutes and clinics at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena as well as non-university research institutions.

MiCom2020: 8th International Conference on Microbial Communication for Young Scientists

The MiCom 2020 in Jena is a great platform to encourage discussions between young scientists and experts from all fields of research related to microbial communication. The conference traditionally consists of five chaired sessions (Chemical Ecology, Environment, Natural Products, Pathogenesis, and Systems Biology) each containing two outstanding keynote lectures and a number of selected student talks.

In addition to all talks, the MiCom includes a poster session and provides diverse workshops, social activities, a welcome reception (including a Science Slam!) and an official dinner.

Registration (Early bird until the 6th January) and abstract submission will be open till the 31st January 2020.
