Welcome to PHAVES!
A seminar series for all phage enthusiasts around the world, from researchers to biotech companies to clinicians! Suitable for those starting their phage journey through to senior phage experts!
How PHAVES came about
During the pandemic, we heard from many of you that you were missing out on hearing about each other's phage work, and missing talking to your fellow phage researchers and developers! So we started a series of virtual phage events in 2020 called PHAVES.
We like to experiment with a range of formats, including seminars, AMAs, interviews, panels and more! Plus, we love to incorporate opportunities to meet and chat with other phage enthusiasts.
Event recordings: Most events are recorded and shared in Capsid & Tail and on YouTube after the fact. (Prospective speakers, let us know anytime if this will be an issue for you). Videos are posted on our Youtube channel: https://phage.directory/youtube
Event summaries: Event summaries are written up and published in Capsid & Tail, our weekly newsletter, usually the third week of each month. Sign up to receive it here: https://phage.directory/capsid
Subscribe to our PHAVES Events Series
Our events occur approximately every month, and we will email you the details the day of the event. Remembering to sign up for every event can get tedious, so you can just sign up here if you'd like to get updates for every event! (If it gets to be too much, unsubscribing is easy).
Once you're signed up, event details will be sent the day of each event.
We currently don't have any events scheduled — Please check back soon for our next event, or subscribe to our PHAVES Events Series to get notifications of future events!
