Welcome to the NW ASM Branch website serving professionals in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Our annual meetings include both general and clinical microbiology sessions. We host special sessions for educators that are focused on the latest approaches to teaching microbiology. Poster sessions highlight both graduate and undergraduate work in microbiology. Attending branch meetings is a great way for your students to get experience presenting their work and provide the opportunity to meet with professionals in the field. Registration for undergraduate students is always free. If you would like to join the branch and support this important work please visit the ASM Branches website.
