Partnering with microbiology: American Society for Microbiology

The American Society for Microbiology





The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is the world’s largest scientific society of individuals interested in the microbiological sciences. The mission of the ASM is to advance the microbiological sciences as a vehicle for understanding life processes and to apply and communicate this knowledge for the improvement of health and environmental and economic well-being worldwide.

To achieve these goals, ASM:

  • Support programs of education, training and public information
  • Publishes journals and books
  • Convene meetings, workshops, and colloquia
  • Promote the contributions and promise of the microbiological sciences
  • Recognize achievement and distinction among its practitioners
  • Set standards of ethical and professional behavior

potential for developing new understanding of each other’s practice that will improve communication between the laboratory and infection control, facilitate a more rapid response to the ever challenging face of healthcare-associated infection, and raise national awareness of the important work done by APIC and ASM,” said Lance R. Peterson, MD, University of Chicago and NorthShore University HealthSystem and ASM’s expert on this project. “I was very excited when told of the APIC-ASM partnership program to develop new educational resources focusing on microbiology, diagnostics, and surveillance to help improve patient outcomes in the modern healthcare arena. I have been involved in both diagnostic microbiology and infection control activities for more than 30 years and know how well these two critical healthcare disciplines complement one another to the benefit of patient care.”
