1 min read

Christopher T. Walsh, the Hamilton Kuhn Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School (HMS), has recently been elected by the American Academy of Microbiology (AAM) to its Board of Governors — alongside five other newly elected microbiology scientists joining the board.

On the board, Walsh will help set the academy’s strategic direction, ratify fellowship elections, develop new topics for colloquia, and assist in the establishment of new programs and initiatives consistent with the AAM’s overall mission.

The American Academy of Microbiology is the honorific leadership group within the American Society for Microbiology, and has a mission to recognize scientists for outstanding contributions to microbiology and provide microbiological expertise in the service of science and the public.
