Hello and welcome to the Rutgers Student Chapter of the American Society for Microbiology webpage. We are a graduate student organization affiliated with Theobald Smith Society, the North Jersey branch of ASM. Our mission is to encourage education, research and application of microbiology, and to widen our breadth of exposure to all faucets of microbiology. We work to meet these objectives by hosting monthly membership meetings, guest lectures, joint ventures with the Theobald Smith Society, research symposia, and social activities that foster relationships between faculty and chapter members.
Who We Are
We are composed primarily of graduate students in the microbiology and biotechnology disciplines. However, undergraduate students, as well as anyone with an interest in microbiology, are also welcome to be a part of the organization. For more information on applying for a membership, please contact Lauren Hall or Ciarra Williams.
