About the American Society for Microbiology Branch Lectureships

  The American Society for Microbiology Branch Lectureships (ASMBL) Program (formerly the Waksman Foundation for Microbiology Lectures Program) gives ASM Branches the opportunity to secure highly-qualified Lecturers for their Branch meetings.  The program pays the travel and subsistence expenses for one Lecturer per Branch, per year.  (Branches are able to obtain additional funding for a second Lecturer through their Regional Planning Coordinators.) The ASMBL Program Committee has selected speakers for the 2008-2009 program year to participate in Branch meetings.  Branches make arrangements directly with Lecturers to arrange for their participation in meetings.  Lecturer availability is on a first-come, first-served basis, based on each Lecturer’s independent schedule. Since the provision of one lecture per year to each Branch is conditioned upon resources, the Committee reminds Branches and Lecturers to employ all possible cost-saving measures when making arrangements.  The program rules and guidelines have been designed to assist in the conservation of program funds.  (Click here to access rules and guidelines)    The ASMBL program is administered through the Office of Branch Activities in the Membership Services Department of ASM:   Office of Branch ActivitiesMembership Services DepartmentAmerican Society for Microbiology
