Awards

AMI recognises the accomplishments of scientists at all stages in their careers.

Microbiological innovations and achievements are deeply embedded in global life — in the economy, in governmental policy decisions, and in the reaches of human imagination.

AMI recognises the accomplishments of scientists and public figures in our key priority areas and on a range of microbiology issues. The organisation has several awards and special lectures that highlight these individuals and allow a platform for them to share their work.
