Welcome to the UNLV Student Chapter of the American Society for Microbiology website. Our mission is to promote science as well as microbiology within Southern Nevada. Our two main objectives are to: 1) foster science curiosity among children in all grades and 2) host a scientific lecture by a renowned microbiologist. These goals are achieved through our monthly meetings, public outreach events, joint ventures with public health facilities and other scientific societies, symposia, and information provided through our website.

We welcome all students with interests in microbiology and related sciences. We offer our members networking opportunities to help foster professional camaraderie and prepare budding scientists to interact with the local scientific community learning to overcome the future challenges in microbiology.
