We would like to announce the upcoming 105th Meeting of the Southeastern Branch of the American Society for Microbiology.

This meeting will be hosted by the University of Alabama at Huntsville and will take place on the UAH campus from February 21-23, 2020. An evening reception on Saturday, February 22nd will be held under the Saturn V rocket at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

Researchers in the southeastern region encompass a diverse range of interests and expertise. In the “Rocket City,” we encourage attendance from researchers from all fields of microbiology—from the depths of the Earth’s crust to outer space and everything in between the two. The ASM regional meeting provides an intimate setting (~200 attendees) to showcase your work and is an excellent venue to network with faculty, postdocs, students, and industry professionals in the region. We aim to provide professional development opportunities, including oral presentations, career seminars, and workshops for attendees.

We are honored to feature an exceptional keynote speaker :

  • Dr. Rita Tamayo from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill

  • Phenotypic heterogeneity impacts virulence of Clostridioides difficile.

Please encourage your colleagues and students to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation. Deadlines are as follows:

  • Abstract submission (for talks selection): Friday, January 10, 2020 at 5:00pm CST,

  • Poster abstract submission: Friday, January 24, 2020 at 5:00pm CST,

  • Early-bird registration: Friday, January 24, 2020.
