Bio-Resource Center

About the Bio Resource Centre

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world, with more than 39, 000 global members representing 27 disciplines of microbiological specialization. ASM is an established leader for the best practices across the microbiological sciences; through its state-of-the-art journal, hundreds of books titles, and multiple internationally recognized meetings and conferences, ASM fosters scientific exchange and access to advanced, up-to-date scientific materials.

The ASM aids in establishing BioResource Centers (BRC), which are ASM local hubs for experts, students, faculty, partners, and the community to gather and connect on a shared passion for addressing global challenges through sciences. The BRC initiative aims to engage local scientific communities and offer access to high quality, up-to-date scientific information. This partnership between ASM and host countries provides a platform for collaboration, continuing education, training, and scientific and community exchange. Collectively, BRCs around the world form a global network where all scientists, health professionals, and community members can mutually benefit.

So far five BRCs in Zambia have been established, with one located at Evelyn Hone College in the School of Applied and Health Sciences, Biomedical Science Section. The facility is open to students, lecturers and other professionals interested in Microbiology.
