German Phage Symposium


  • A Bacteriophage is a phage virus which exclusively infects bacteria. In genetic engineering, phages are often used as vectors.
  • Phage is the short form for bacteriophage – a virus that reproduces in bacteria.

University of Hohenheim is delighted to invite you to the 1st German Phage Symposium at the University of Hohenheim.

Outstanding researchers have confirmed their participation (Keynote and Invited Speakers) in this event which takes place for the first time in Germany.

The aim of the Symposium is to bring together leading scientists, companies, policy-makers and regulators. They will present and engage in lively discussion about key topics, new findings and trends in this timely and compelling field of bacteriophage research.

Scientific Sessions (Program):

  • Structure-function relationship
  • Host-phage interaction & evolution of microbial communities
  • Clinical applications
  • Non-clinical applications
  • Practical applications and regulations.

This year is the 100th anniversary of the bacteriophage research. Despite this long tradition, several research and policy questions still remain unsolved. This is especially true for the current situation in Germany. Therefore, a highlight of the Symposium will be the Panel Discussion "Quo vadis, deutsche Bakteriophagenforschung?" on Day 3. Several organizations from the public and private sector have confirmed their participation.

Another important goal of the Symposium is to raise public awareness and to promote funding for this field in Germany. Therefore, various stakeholders and media have been invited to attend the Symposium, and in particular the Panel Discussion and Press Conference.

Hohenheim would be happy to give all interested scientists the opportunity to get to know the work of potential cooperation partners and to develop ideas for new collaborative projects. For this reason, there are workshops at the end of the Symposium.
