Australian Society for Microbiology NSW-ACT Branch

The Australian Society for Microbiology (ASM) is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 1959, becoming an incorporated professional society in 1976. The society aims to bring microbiologists together to advance the science of microbiology in Australia and to promote the awareness of microbiology and its important role in everyday life. There are now approximately 2000 ASM members across Australia, working in diverse areas including medical, environmental, and industrial microbiology, and contributing to research and teaching in the discipline.

This website is specific to the members and activities of the New South Wales/Australian Capital Territory (NSW/ACT) branch of the ASM. To find out more about the nationwide activities of our parent organisation (e.g. the annual scientific meeting), please see here: https://www.theasm.org.au
