The Junior Scientists Microbiology Meeting of Marseille (JSM3) is a student association created in 2015 by a group of Ph.D. students at Aix Marseille University (AMU) working in research laboratories of the Institut de Microbiologie de la Méditerranée (IMM- Mediterranean Institute of Microbiology) in Marseille (France).

The JSM3 evolved from an unfortunate observation : as phD student from IMM, we noticed that we barely knew the research projects of our colleagues at the same institution. Starting with this discussion, we aim to enhance the exchange between students from different microbiology laboratories, and thus create new scientific collaborations between the different Microbiology research units in Marseille.

To bring together all the microbiology young researchers of Marseille, and to allow Ph.D. students and post-docs candidates to share about microbiology and personal experience, the association is organizing every year a scientific meeting named after the association, the Junior Scientists Microbiology Meeting of Marseille. During two days, all the young researchers of the institute are invited to present their work with a short talk, or a poster presentation, to the microbiology community of Marseille, including researchers, engineers, students and teachers.

We are pleased to inform you that we formed the new committee for the 4th Edition of the "Junior Scientists Microbiology Meeting of Marseille" (JSM3) which will take place on the Joseph Aiguier Campus in the Grand Hall and Pierre Desnuelle Amphitheater.

Junior scientists from different horizons (Ph. D. students, engineers and post-doctoral researchers) working the IMM to present their work and exchange in English with the rest of the institute by either :
- giving a 10 minute talk followed by 5 minutes of questions
- presenting a poster

We will keep you informed of the opening of registration soon.

We are hoping that you will participate and look forward to this exciting meeting!
