ASM Branch Lectureships Program

The American Society for Microbiology Branch Lectureships Program (formerly known as the Waksman Foundation for Microbiology Lectures Program) allows ASM Branches to secure outstanding lecturers for their scientific meetings. The Lecture Committee selects only the most distinguished lecturers and researchers for participation in the program. The program has been operating for over 40 years, and lecturers continue to enhance scientific meetings at the local level.

Funding for the ASM Branch Lectureships Program Program is restricted to ASM Branch and Regional Meetings.
