Mission Statement:

The Kentucky/Tennessee branch of the American Society of Microbiology exists to unify microbiology specialties and subspecialties within the area of these two states. We value the contributions that our members make within political, societal, clinical, industrial, and educational venues. Therefore, the branch meets once a year to discuss and present research, receive updates regarding public policy and attitudes, and stimulate student interest and participation in microbiological topics and related disciplines.
