Mobilizing AAM Fellows through the Virtual Speaker Program
ASM Launched a new BRC to great fanfare!
More than 1.2 million people are infected with HIV in both urban and rural areas in Ethiopia. Since 2011, ASM has been working in partnership with the CDC-Ethiopia and the Ethiopian Health and Nutrition Research Institute (EHNRI) to build human and laboratory capacity to improve clinical microbiology services across the Ethiopian laboratory network through customized training and mentoring programs.
An official launch ceremony for the ASM-Taiz University Bio Resource Center (BRC) was held on September 5th in Taiz, Yemen. The event, which was covered by several local news outlets, included presentations by university leadership and the ASM Ambassador to Yemen. Following the opening ceremony and tour of the center, students and faculty participated in a presentation on Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery hosted by the BRC. By offering access to both lecture events and resources such as ASM books and journals, the Center will serve as a dynamic and effective instrument for advancing microbiology among the nearly 2,000 students in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and interested members of public.
