Science policy responses
SfAM enables microbiologists within our membership and beyond to connect with Government and Parliament, giving them a voice to help maximise the impact of microbiological research and application. To achieve this, the Society frequently responds to requests from policymakers for evidence and information, working in tandem with our members and partner organizations. Through our science policy responses, our membership places SfAM as a go-to organization for policymakers to access high-quality evidence and advice, based on cutting edge microbiological research.
