The mission of the South Carolina Branch of the American Society for Microbiology (SCBASM) is to serve as networking venues for like-minded scientists within a limited geographic area in order to facilitate discussions, foster collaborations and help students acquaint themselves with the mechanics of a scientific meeting.
The SCBASM holds two annual meetings with one in the spring and one in the fall. In the spring meetings, we invite prominent speakers from the ASM Branch Lectureship program and institutes in the state to make presentations on topics that are of interests to our members. Scientists, post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to present their posters in preparation for their annual ASM General Meeting. In the fall meetings, we invite presentations from scientists in the state and showcase the works of our post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate student members via oral presentations.
We hope that you, your colleagues, and laboratory will recognize this as an excellent opportunity to meet, network and support the American Society for Microbiology within South Carolina and encourage you and your students (undergraduate and graduate) and post-docs to present their works in these meetings.
