The NYC Branch of the American Society for Microbiology is a volunteer-based non-profit corporation organized for educational and scientific purposes. The NYC Branch is represented on the Council of the American Society for Microbiology from which the Branch draws support yet functions independently. We promote scientific knowledge and continuing education in microbiology and related subjects to our members, to students and to the public.
This goal is achieved through Branch meetings, joint ventures with public health facilities and other scientific societies, symposia, newsletter publications as well as information communicated through our website. We offer our members networking opportunities to help foster professional camaraderie and to prepare the local clinical laboratory community in meeting the future challenges in microbiology.
Consider joining NYC ASM. The cost is small, the benefits large.
