Dear Friends of Microbes,

We would like to invite you to participate to the ASM Michigan Branch Spring Meeting to be held at Michigan State University on March 31st and April 1st, 2017.

Our goal is to bring together researchers and students from the state of Michigan that share a common interest in microbial research to build a local community and foster collaborations among our institutions. The meeting will feature three invited speakers, student and postdoc talks, and a poster session. We will also have a special session on alternative careers in Microbiology and a social mixer.

Registration and abstract submission is now open at Student presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.

Please share this announcement broadly to your groups and colleagues. We look forward to seeing you at Michigan State!
