We are excited to unveil our official event logo, a symbol that beautifully weaves together the intricate patterns of the melioidosis microbe with the rich tapestry of Aboriginal artwork.


The centre of the artwork emphasises the meeting place of the 2024 World Melioidosis Congress. The shapes surrounding this meeting place show the diverse representation of people uniting in the shared pursuit of knowledge.


The lines connecting to the meeting place represent the various paths travelled from different corners of the world, converging upon Darwin, Australia. The symbols within these lines represent different aspects of melioidosis identification and research; microscopy, Burkholderia pseudomallei growth on agar plates, and the forward and reverse TTS1 PCR primers across the centre.
