American Society for Microbiology to host 114th General Meeting in Boston
Date:2/18/2014

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) will hold its 114th General Meeting, May 17-20, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting will feature approximately 3,000 individual scientific presentations spanning the breadth of microbiology and has an expected attendance of 8,000.

The meeting will feature a broad range of cutting-edge research in the microbiological sciences including biomedicine, food safety, the environment and more.

Among the topics to be presented are:

Microbial responses to global climate change Where will the next big disease threat come from? Antibiotic resistance in the food chain Bugs as drugs: Harnessing microbes to fight disease Microorganisms as both cause and cure for cancer How modern microbiology jeopardizes the neoDarwinian synthesis

A trend at this year's meeting is how new technologies are not only changing how scientists do microbiology, but also how researchers view the role of microbiology and how microorganisms are shaping our world in ways we never imagined possible a few years ago. This includes reassessing how we educate and train the next generation of microbiologists.

Reporters can register for the meeting and download additional information at http://bit.ly/asm2014news.

Daily media events will be livestreamed on the internet via the ASM Newsroom and will be archived on YouTube.

Additional press materials can be found at this site as they become available. PLEASE NOTE: The housing deadline is April 25, 2014.

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