ASM Microbe 2017 Convenes In New Orleans This Week

NEW ORLEANS – Hosted by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), ASM Microbe 2017 takes place Thursday, June 1 – Monday, June 5, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s Great Hall and Halls B-G. It’s the largest gathering of microbiologists in the world with an estimated 12,000 professionals in attendance, and it’s the only meeting in the field that explores the full scope of microbiology from basic science to translational and clinical application, organizers said.

         This five-day event will feature seven educational tracks, a keynote from NASA astronaut and molecular biologist Dr. Kate Rubins, Ph. D., and the opportunity to learn from and network with thousands of scientists.

         The ASM is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world, reps said. Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to more than 50,000 members today, with more than one-third located outside the United States. The mission of the ASM is to promote and advance microbial science.
