Joint conference of the 15th Globe Industrial Microbiology Congress (GIM) & Metabolic Engineering Summit (MES 2024)

The Organizing Committee of the joint conference of the 15th Globe Industrial Microbiology Congress (GIM) & Metabolic Engineering Summit (MES 2024) welcomes you to our conference in metropolitan Shanghai, China, from 20 to 25 September 2024. This global gathering will unite over 800 participants from academia and industry worldwide, fostering discussions on cutting-edge science and paving the way for future breakthroughs in microorganisms and biotechnology.

The GIM Symposium, originating in Prague in 1970 and renamed “Globe Industrial Microbiology” in GIM2019 in Pisa, makes its second appearance in China, coinciding with the bi-annual Metabolic Engineering Summit initiated by the International Metabolic Engineering Society (IMES) in 2015 in Beijing. We are confident that this conjunction will open doors for global collaborations.

The conference will feature 10 plenary talks and 13 sessions, including a poster session and flash talks, covering fundamental and applied microbiology, from industrial microbes to metabolic engineering, synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, and human health. GIM & MES 2024 is proudly supported by GIM and IMES, hosted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and East China University of Science and Technology, with assistance from top research institutes in China.

Our ultimate goal in launching this conference series is to encourage open dialogue, share scientific progress, and embrace innovative thinking. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we aim to accelerate progress in understanding microbial genetics, development of metabolic engineering technologies, and their applications across industries. We trust that your time here will be both enriching and fulfilling, contributing to the success of this conference. The backdrop of the beautiful and historic city of Shanghai will add to the pleasure of the meeting, creating lasting memories beyond the science.

Wishing you an edifying and transformative stay, we look forward to a remarkable GIM & MES 2024!
