American Society for Microbiology to host 111th General Meeting in New Orleans
Date:3/3/2011

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) will hold its 111th General Meeting May 21-24, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The meeting will feature approximately 3,000 individual scientific presentations spanning the breadth of microbiology and has an expected attendance of 10,000.

Microbiologists study living organisms and infectious agents, and their work is critical to human and animal health, agriculture, the environment and biotechnology. Many accomplishments in the microbiological sciences have significantly affected our lives, such as the development of treatments for infectious diseases, the prevention of food spoilage, the use of microorganisms to clean up pollutants and basic knowledge of the nature of all living things.

Among the topics to be presented are:

  • Using social networks to successfully track disease outbreaks
  • How microbes can feed the world
  • Update on the Gulf oil spill
  • Microbes controlling climate
  • Impact of globalization on the food supply
  • Re-engineering gut bacteria based on traditional Chinese medicine

Of special note: This year's meeting will feature a new medical microbiology track, focusing on diagnostic microbiology and epidemiology. For more information on this track can be found at http://mbio.asm.org/content/1/5/e00294-10.full

Additional press materials can be found at this site as they become available. PLEASE NOTE: The housing deadline is April 3, 2011. While media will be allowed to register for the meeting after that date, they will be responsible for arranging hotel accommodations on their own.

Comprehensive media facilities will be available and meeting registration is complimentary for the media.
