Maine Society for Microbiology

The Maine Society for Microbiology is a collegiate branch of the American Society for Microbiology for undergraduate and graduate students. Membership is open to any student with an interest in microbiology and to helping develop a healthy attitude about microbiologically related topics such as: emerging disease awareness, media related perspectives on microbiology, and current trends in research. We pursue these interests through relaxed gatherings, weekly meetings, social gatherings, field trips, and by attending conferences. We also emphasize community outreach by visiting local schools to foster scientific interest in the youth. Opportunities are also arranged for students to make professional contacts for help in identifying future careers and sources for advice.
