Full membership

Full members make up the bulk of our UK membership.

You are eligible to apply for full membership if you reside in the United Kingdom. As a Full Member you will be kept at the forefront of microbiology and benefit from the experience of an invaluable network of peers, advancing your own professional development. Joining SfAM is easy, and offers a wide range of membership benefits.

For those with just an interest in Microbiology, or those who wish to get member rates to our events, we also offer associate membership. Associate Members do not get access to grants or journals.
