ASM Public Outreach Program
ASM’s General Meeting will bring thousands of microbiologists to Boston in May to share their latest findings, learn about new technology and network.  This year we are inviting members of the public in for a special program on Sunday afternoon.  ASM is partnering with the Boston Museum of Science to offer a program called “Technology and Microbiology: A Public Discussion at the 2014 American Society for Microbiology Meeting.”  Participants will tour the exhibition floor before adjourning to a nearby room to reflect on the role of technology in discovery.  They also have the chance to stay for the Sunday evening reception where they can mingle with members like you. The Museum of Science will soon be advertising this program to its extensive audience in the Boston area.  

ASM would like to thank the following Exhibitors for participating in the Public Outreach Program:

  • BD Diagnostics
  • bioMérieux, Inc.
  • Bruker Daltonics
  • Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics
