The American Society for Microbiology will hold its 100th General Meeting in Los Angeles, CA, May 21-25, 2000, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The meeting, which concludes the celebration of the Society's 100th year in existence, will feature approximately 3,000 scientific presentations on topics spanning the spectrum of the microbiological sciences.
Microbiologists study living organisms and infectious agents, and their work is critical to health, agriculture, the environment and biotechnology. Many accomplishments in the microbiological sciences have significantly affected our lives, such as the development of treatments for infectious diseases, the prevention of food spoilage, the use of microorganisms to clean up pollutants and basic knowledge of the nature of all living things.
More detailed information, including programs and abstracts, will be available in late April. Preliminary programs are currently available and can be obtained by contacting the ASM Office of Communications or via the World Wide Web at www.asmusa.org.
The ASM, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest and largest single biological membership organization with approximately 44,000 members worldwide. Members work in different organizations, including education (research institutions, undergraduate and graduate institutions, and medical dental and veterinary schools), industry (pharmaceutical, food and agriculture, biotechnology, environmental, and pollution control companies and hospitals), and federal and state governments (research laboratories and public health).
