This week, some FABIans attended the 2022 International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control. This was a virtual meeting.

FABI was represented by eight speakers including Prof. Brett Hurley, postdocs and students. FABIans enjoyed various talks from the different divisions of invertebrate pathology presented by international researchers.

We would like to congratulate the various FABIans on the awards acquired during the course of this congress. Dr. Agil Katumanyane was awarded the 2022 Chris J. Lomer Memorial Award which recognizes and supports attendance to the SIP annual meeting for excellent scientists in invertebrate pathology and microbial control from lower to middle income countries. Innocent Rakubu won the student travel award for the nematode division while Sumari Venter won the best student oral presentation in the nematode division
