More than 350 microbiology and biology educators will gather at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) August 1–4, 2019 in Tysons, VA, for an engaging four-day conference. Educators come from a wide range of institutions – from community colleges to international universities – to fully immerse themselves in biological sciences.

The conference program includes plenary, concurrent, poster, and exhibit sessions. Participants engage in formal and informal small group discussions between colleagues all focused on the same goal: to improve teaching and learning in the biological sciences.


Poster Abstracts

Submission deadline: March 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (PT) 

Share your innovative teaching techniques with microbiology educators by submitting a poster abstract.

​Posters focus on education research outcomes associated with any of the subdisciplines in the biological sciences. This opportunity provides an excellent venue for faculty to showcase their educational research.



Submission deadline: April 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (PT)

Share your "brewing idea" in the classroom or lab with your  fellow microbiology educators. Submit your abstract for microbrews. 

A microbrew showcases a “brewing idea” in any of the subdisciplines in the biological sciences. Presenters can share or field test new ideas and solicit feedback from peers. Unlike other presentation opportunities at ASMCUE, assessment data are NOT required. There will also be a collaboration space following the presentations for continued discussions. 




Travel Awards

Application deadline: April 20, 2019

ASM members who submit a session proposal, poster abstract, or microbrew are eligible for travel awards to attend ASMCUE 2019.
