Main meetings pageAbout SGM : Divisions

The Society caters for the different areas of modern microbiology through five divisions:

Each division is divided into four themes, to ensure that all areas of microbial science are covered:

  • Microbial Diversity and Evolution
  • Fundamental Microbiology
  • Translational and Applied Microbiology
  • Infectious Disease

The members of each division are selected to ensure that the appropriate areas of interest are covered and make up the scientific meetings organizational matrix. Each Division is headed by a Chair and Chair-elect, who sit on the Scientific Meetings Committee responsible for making decisions on policy and meetings content. The Scientific Meetings Officer will report to Council. Society members can make proposals for sessions to the Scientific Meetings Committee.
