The 25th annual Midwest Microbial Pathogenesis Conference (MMPC) was held at the University of Iowa from 28 to 30 September 2018. The conference has a long-standing tradition of providing scientists from the Midwest with a forum to present and discuss cutting-edge advances in microbial pathogenesis with particular focus on bacterial interactions with the environment, host, and other microbes. This review summarizes the genesis of the MMPC, topics presented at the conference, and articles found in the special MMPC sections of this issue of the Journal of Bacteriology.
