Each year, the American Academy of Microbiology (Academy) elects exceptional scientists to fellowship in the Academy. Academy Fellows represent a wide variety of microbiology sectors, including research, education, public health, industry and government service. The Governors of the Academy elect fellows from a pool of nominated candidates.
Nominees for fellowship must exhibit high ethical standards, scientific excellence, originality, scholarly and creative achievement and leadership. The Academy takes each of these selection criteria extremely seriously and will take appropriate measures to address any alleged or actual unethical behavior by Academy Fellows.
ASM fosters a culture of equity and inclusion to achieve diversity in science. Specifically, ASM seeks to create a culture where all individuals feel respected, are treated fairly and are provided opportunities to develop professionally and excel in their chosen career pathway.
Nominations for this year are closed. Nominations for the 2022 Fellowship Class will open as of Aug. 1, 2021. For questions or clarifications, please contact Academy@asmusa.org.
