ASM Meetings


The American Society for Microbiology (“ASM”) is the main forum for microbial sciences that considers and debates scientific issues in an orderly, respectful, and fair manner. The ASM is committed to providing an environment that encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas and promotes equal opportunities and respectful treatment for all participants. All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration, follow venue rules, and alert ASM staff or security of any dangerous situations or anyone in distress. 

ASM prohibits and will not tolerate any form of harassment or bullying at its events. Read the full policy here

ASM/ESCMID Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance 

September 3–6, 2019
Boston, MA

Antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) is an urgent global health problem. New antimicrobial drug development is increasingly viewed as a priority by National and International bodies. There are relatively few agents in developmental pipelines and a paucity of identified microbiological targets that can be exploited for drug development. Co-sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), this multidisciplinary meeting will address the challenges, opportunities and current requirements for antimicrobial drug development for AMR.
