Two weeks ago, four Pathsense ESRs, ESR 4 Charlotte Dessaux,  ESR 1 Buu Minh Tran, ESR 8 Ana Oliveira and ESR 9 Emma Ivanova attended the 20th International Symposium on Problems of Listeria and Listeriosis (ISOPOL) 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

Charlotte presented her research entitled Detecting Listeria monocytogenes Stressosome proteins in response to stress, and Buu Minh explained how the diffusion and interactions of macromolecules in cells play essential roles in the physiology and
biochemical organization of the cytoplasm. His topic during at the symposium was Protein diffusion in the cytoplasm of Listeria monocytogenes. 

Ana (ESR 8) talked about how the Stressosome is able to return to a non-stressed mode when the bacteria is no longer facing stress at the symposium, the topic is called The X-factor: An investigation into the role of RsbX in σB regulation. ESR 9, Emma, evaluate plant extracts that have anti-Listeria effects and presented her research in Toronto as well. Her topic entitled: Evaluation of the anti-Listeria effects of various plant extracts and their potential use as natural preservatives.
