Speakers' Bureau

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is pleased to announce a Speakers' Bureau of microbiologists and immunologists. These speakers would love to come to your next chapter meeting to discuss their career in microbiology! Its purpose is to make students aware of the myriad of career opportunities that a degree in microbiology offers.

The Speakers' Bureau features experts in the clinical laboratory and industry, including biosafety, food, medical device, and pharmaceuticals who are eager to talk to you about their dynamic careers in microbiology. You can hear first-hand from speakers who have contributed to microbiome projects and Bartonella studies and chat with outbreak responders about curious cases! These experts will discuss their career highlights and day-to-day responsibilities.

Explore careers in infectious diseases, chemical contamination, and bacterial pathogens!
