Welcome to the New York City American Society for Microbiology!
The NYC Branch now holds a minimum of two annual scientific meetings a year, an Annual Meeting in the Spring and the second in the Fall. The branch meetings play an important role as a forum for the membership to experience scientific meetings at the local level. Our goal is to provide affordable continuing education and the opportunity for professional networking and growth to our members. In the past, the Branch has also sponsored a student chapter and science competitions which have helped to foster interest in our discipline among the student community.
The NYC ASM has offered many diverse programs and symposia on topics relating to bioterrorism, newly emerging infectious diseases, as well as more routine topics to better prepare and update the clinical laboratory community on the changing trends in microbiology.
