American Society for Microbiology

Florida Branch


The Florida Branch of the American Society for Microbiology is where microbiologists (from high school students to senior researchers) meet.  Our branch includes people from academia, industry, government, and non-profit organizations.  Our backgrounds and areas of interest cover a wide range of fields including public health, oceanography, molecular mechanisms, genetics, genomics, biodefense, biodiversity, and more!


Our mission is to promote microbiology within the State of Florida and bring together people interested in this field. This goal is achieved through annual branch meetings, sponsored seminars, and information provided through this web site and our Facebook group.
