Building communities is at the heart of SfAM's activities.

At the heart of SfAM's values and strategy is the Society's vision for building strong integrated microbiology communities where people – whatever their background – can study, work, teach, learn, and socialise together, based on a shared interest and passion for applied microbiology.


SfAM is building a library of mentors and individuals who wish to be mentored.
