The 749th Monthly Meeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania Branch of ASM, held on September 19, 2016 at Thomas Jefferson University, was a special meeting to honor Branch Emeritus members, as well as current Branch members who have belonged to National ASM for 40 years or more.  The Branch currently has 23 members in the “40-year plus” category, including two 65-year members, James Smith and Victor Iacocca, both of whom attended the meeting.

 

The meeting, “Branch Genomics: Mixing the Old and New Branch Generations,” focused on how Microbiology and the Branch have evolved over the last 60 years, and included some thoughts on future directions from the current Student Chapter (future Branch leaders!).  Presentations included:    

  • “The Branch and Microbiology 1950-1976 (James Poupard, Pharma Institute of Philadelphia)
  • “Changes in Microbiology at Temple University – Then & Now” (Toby K. Eisenstein, Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University)
  • “Clinical Laboratories Microbiology – Then & Now” (Olarae Giger, Main Line Health Laboratories)
  • “Microbiology Education – Then & Now” (Barbara McHale, Office of the President, Gwynedd Mercy University)
  • “The Branch Student Chapter – The Future” (Simon Knight, Branch President; Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania; and Neil Sullivan, Student Chapter President; Drexel University)     Eastern PA - Sept 2016 Mtg - Student Chapter Pres

Meeting attendees included students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and scientists working in laboratories in industry, government and medical schools – a diverse range of “old and new” members.  Photos and a “mix the generations” dessert session was held after the formal meeting.  

 

Reflecting on her involvement in the Eastern Pennsylvania Branch, Eisenstein commented, “The Branch has served a central role in communicating the depth and breadth of microbiology and connecting microbiologists working in different spheres of the science; the friends and colleagues I have met here over the years have had a major impact on my life and career.” 

 

Established in 1920, the Eastern Pennsylvania Branch of the ASM serves professional microbiologists across Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and South/Central New Jersey through several annual events as well as regular monthly meetings.   The Branch also sponsors an active regional Student Chapter.  For information on upcoming Branch activities:  https://www.epaasm.org/
