International Affairs has partnered with the American Academy for Microbiology (AAM) staff and leadership to launch the Virtual Speaker Program (VSP). The 2500+ AAM Fellows represent one of the world’s greatest pools of microbiological expertise. Through recorded lectures developed by AAM Fellows and disseminated by ASM Ambassadors, AAM Fellows will be able to share their knowledge in remote Pakistani classrooms, at local scientific meetings in Argentina, or at an ASM Bio-Resource Center in China. When possible, a 15 minute live Q&A will follow the viewing of the recorded lecture. In addition to promoting knowledge sharing, the program will build awareness of ASM’s other resources and foster engagement with microbiology communities around the world.
