Rio Grande Branch Annual Meeting


Friday-Saturday April 12-13, 2019


The Annual Meeting of the Rio Grande Branch of the American Society for Microbiology (RGASM) will be held on the campus of New Mexico Tech in Socorro, New Mexico April 12-13, 2019.  

Though the meeting is still being planned, one of this year's keynote speakers will be ASM Distinguished Lecturer Dr. Brian Hammer from Georgia Institute of Technology.  He will present "Quorum-controlled small RNAs: how, what, and why".

Of course, we will also have short 10-15 minute talks and posters given by students, faculty and staff.  As there is only a limited amount of time for short talks, please submit an abstract by March 15, 2019 if you plan to present a short talk and April 1, 2019 for a poster. 

Please distribute this newsletter to anyone else you think might attend the conference.

There are many hotels in the Socorro area.  Attendees are responsible for their own accommodations.

Meeting Locations:
The meeting will take place both Friday night and Saturday at New Mexico Tech.
