The ASM William A. Hinton Award for Advancement of a Diverse Community of Microbiologists recognizes outstanding contributions toward fostering the research training of minorities and increasing diversity in microbiology. It is given in memory of William A. Hinton, a physician-research scientist, and one of the first African Americans to join ASM. He developed the Hinton test for syphilis, which became the standard procedure due to its ease of use, cost-effectiveness and accuracy compared to earlier tests.
