The J. Howard Brown Award is presented to an outstanding graduate and an outstanding undergraduate student who make contributions worthy of recognition in the field of microbiology. The award was established in memory of J. Howard Brown in 1954. You may submit abstracts already shown at other conferences, or that will be shown at ASM Microbe 2022. Brown award winners will be notified ahead of the meeting so they may prepare an oral presentation of their winning study. 


Please note: All students, regardless of ASM membership, are encouraged to submit abstracts for the award. Non-students, also regardless of ASM membership status, are also encouraged to submit abstracts for approval to present posters.


Share your research at our annual poster presentation. Join your colleagues for an evening of scientific discussions and presentations by students and members.
