American Society for Microbiology (ASM) continues to advocate for scientific solutions to climate change.

ASM leadership recently hosted a virtual panel during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Science Summitt to discuss The Role of Microbiology is Sustainable Development. As part of a joint call to action ASM joined with other societies on the editorial titled, Call for Emergency Action to Limit Global Temperature Increases, Restore Biodiversity, and Protect Health.

ASM understands the need to protect the health of the world through science and encourages authors to submit their high-quality research to share with the microbiolgy community.
