ASM Names Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health a “Milestones in Microbiology” site

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has designated the Bloomberg School as a “Milestones in Microbiology” site. The school will celebrate the designation on May 3, 2024. ASM President Virginia Miller will present the Milestones plaque to the Bloomberg School on behalf of ASM.

The “Milestones in Microbiology” program was established by ASM to promote greater awareness and appreciation of microbiology. The award recognizes sites where major developments and pivotal discoveries occurred. The Bloomberg School is being recognized for its many research accomplishments that have had broad international impact on fundamental and translational microbiology.

Since the inception of the Bloomberg School, faculty members and their teams in what are now the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology (MMI) and the Department of Epidemiology, have contributed multiple historical “firsts,” pivotal discoveries, and scientific advancements in microbiology.
