Milestones in Microbiology - Program Guidelines

RETURN TO CHOMA HOME PAGE

 

To promote greater awareness and appreciation of microbiology, the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has established the Milestones in Microbiology Program, which recognizes sites where major developments occurred and/or where outstanding microbiologists made seminal discoveries.  The objectives of the Milestones in Microbiology Program are to foster interest in the nation’s microbiological heritage and to remind citizens, educators and “visitors” of the importance of microbiology. 

 

The Milestones in Microbiology Committee welcomes nominations of prospective Milestones sites, and has prepared the following two documents for use by individuals or groups wishing to nominate a site for designation:

ANNUAL DEADLINE for Site Nominations - January 31st.
