The Microbiology Society supports campaigns which align the our Aims & Objectives.
The Microbiology Society strongly supports this global initiative, which focuses attention on the need to develop new antimicrobial therapies in the face of increasing antimicrobial resistance. Microbiology research has a key role to play in this global challenge. Antibiotic Action is a global initiative established by the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.
The Ask for Evidence campaign aims to get more members of the public asking advertisers, companies, government bodies and other organisations to set out the evidence they have for their claims.
The Microbiology Society sees significant potential in the use of biotechnology research to mitigate food insecurity and the use of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) as just one of the many tools in the researcher’s toolbox that, with rigorous legislative and ethical review, may yield products or processes to improve food security. The Society will continue to inform the debate about the use of such technology.
A partnership of learned societies representing 75,000 scientists has come together to lead the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
Science is Vital is a grassroots campaign of UK scientists and supporters of science who believe that a strong science base is vital to the UK’s economy and reputation.
